Robin

Turdus migratorius

Description:

"American Robins are fairly large songbirds with a large, round body, long legs, and fairly long tail. Robins are the largest North American thrushes, and their profile offers a good chance to learn the basic shape of most thrushes. Robins make a good reference point for comparing the size and shape of other birds, too." Cornell Lab of ornithology

Habitat:

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

Notes:

They are back!!! Even though we still have 8" of snow on the ground! You can hear their call here: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/ameri...
