American Robin, March 29, 2017

Booneville, Mississippi, USA, February 17, 2017
American Robins, Turdus migratorius, are welcomed as the first sign of Spring in many parts of the United States and Canada. They sing a series of notes, rising and falling in pitch: cheer-up, cheerily, cheer-up, cheerily. They eat insects, earthworms, snails, and fruit.

Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, March 9, 2017
At 9-11 inches (23-28cm) they are about twice the size of European Robins. Even though they are both called Robins, they are not closely related.

Hope you are having a great week!
