American Robin, February 12, 2020

Wild Bird Wednesday and My Corner of the World

male American Robin, Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 7, 2020
American Robins, Turdus migratorius, are the largest American members of the Thrush family. Their  main food sources are insects, worms, and fruit.

They can be found over most of the North American continent with the northernmost birds migrating south during the coldest weather. They are so well-known that bird guide books sometimes use them to describe the sizes of other birds: "smaller than a Robin" "larger than a Robin" "Robin-sized."

Have a wonderful day!

  6. The robins I saw yesterday had aligned themselves along the roofline of a building, and I did a doubletake, because they were so perfectly separated as to look like ornamental architecture.
