The American Robin is a member of the thrush family and is very common here in Ohio. These beautiful birds are a sure sign that winter is ending and spring is just around the corner.

There is not a day goes by during the spring, summer or fall months that we don't have Robins feeding in our yard. I love to watch them as they search for worms in the grass.

They stand very still and erect in the yard and then run a few feet and stop. Their heads cocked to one side as if listening for something. If a worm is not detected they continue this pattern until one is located. With a quick forward thrust they plunge their bills just beneath the soil and usually come up with a worm in their beaks.

Normally they play tug-a-war with the worm until it lets go from it's underground burrow. The robin then quickly devours the large worm and looks for another one.

One neat thing about Robins is they sing for what seems like hours. Very early in the morning or late in the evening you hear their sweet songs from their perch in a tree or perhaps even a fence post.

Hi Ron ,

indeed , very different from the European Robin.
Great capture.
TOP !!!

Thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Ron,
C'est encore une très belle publication remarquable pour la finesse de ses détails et la délicatesse de ses couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ron,
Like Luciano I say that this lovely specie has interesting and nice colors a bit different from the European Robin that you can admire on this page of TN
posted by Ives. The composition, focus, colors and sharpnes are at the highest level.

Hello Ron,
Nice to see this Robin in your yard. It's totally different if you compare with my last posted Oriental Magpie-Robin. It's look little bit chubby and different colored. Well captured with nice light and sharpness. Details are good too, but you know sometime Neat Image damages soft details when we try to get a noiseless BG and here although Neat Image worked quite well, but right portion got damage. Still I don't know how to use Neat Image in such situation where WHITE slider plays a great role. Looking forward to know....
Thanks for sharing with informative NOTE,

Very beautiful image and another new bird for me from USA.
