The American Robin (Turdus migratorius) is a migratory songbird of the thrush family, and not related to the European Robin (a flycatcher) it was named after.
The American Robin is very common in this area, and be found in abundance all throughout North America.. In my yards they spend a good deal of time under the deciduous trees picking bugs out from beneath fallen leaves. They share this space with nuthatches and woodpeckers.
Robins are not shy at all. In fact, they tend to follow me around when I do yard work or any sort, snatching up any bugs that I've disturbed or (sometimes) nesting material I've created.
