American Robin (Egg And Nest)

Urdus migratorius

Description:

American Robin egg and nest.

Habitat:

Found on a low hanging branch next to marsh.

Notes:

In a robin couple, a male brings his female partner nesting material as she constructs the robins’ nest. The female builds the cup-like nest with mud as its foundation and lines it with grasses, twigs and other plant material before laying bright blue robin eggs. Female robins lay only one bright blue egg per day and typically lay three or four eggs total, seldom a clutch of five.
