American robin

Turdus migratorious

Description:

A common bird, the American Robin is a ubiquitous habitat generalist. Throughout their range, they may be found in virtually every type of forest and woodland as well as among made-made structures. In Alaska, these birds primarily inhabit spruce forests at lower elevations and alpine willow thickets above tree line. This large-sized (25cm) bird is well known for its prominent brick red breast and belly. The lower belly is white and they are gray-brown above with a darker head and tail. Most American Robins have white corners on the tail that may be seen during flight. These birds also have a conspicuous yellow bill and a patchy white eye ring.

Habitat:

American Robins are common across the continent in gardens, parks, yards, golf courses, fields, pastures, tundra, as well as deciduous woodlands, pine forests, scrubland’s, and forests regenerating after fires or logging.

Notes:
