American Robin
Turdus migratorius


9-11" (23-28 cm). Gray above, brick red below. Head and tail black in males, dull gray in females. Young

birds are spotted below.


Towns, gardens, open woodlands, and agricultural land.


3-5 blue-green eggs in a well-made cup of mud reinforced with grass and twigs, lined with softer grasses,

and placed in a tree or on a ledge or windowsill. Robins usually have 2 broods a season.


Breeds from Alaska east across continent to Newfoundland and south to California, Texas, Arkansas, and South

Carolina. Winters north to British Columbia and Newfoundland.


Song is a series of rich caroling notes, rising and falling in pitch: cheer-up, cheerily, cheer-up, cheerily.

Wonderful picture of the robin, Gregory. Sharp details, good colors, good composition. Well done. TFS. : )

Awesome details in this shot. Perfect POV and light. Image is crisp, clear and razor sharp. Thanks

Welcome to TN, Gregory. I'm always happy to see a new birdwatcher on the site :-).
We don't have this robin here, so double pleasure. The pose is very good as well as the soft light offering many colorful details. Framing with the branch is very good too. Nice bird also, quite a large one, I see.

Beautiful shot. Very sharp, detailed and well composed.
I've never seen this before. Isn't he so pretty?

Great picture, Gregory.
Very good POV, pose and composition. Nice colours and good details.
Excellent work.
