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.

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!
