What makes the American Robin so special

The American Robin can be found all throughout the United States, as well as Canada and Northern Mexico. They are a migratory bird, but some populations of the American Robin have been found to stay around their breeding grounds year round; Canada typically sees American Robins during the summer months, while northern Mexico sees them during the winter months. They are distinguished by their beautiful red-orange bellies!

Habitat: They live in cities, towns, lawns, farmlands and forests. They are used to being around humans and can be found all over the North American continent.

Feeding Behavior: Forages for earthworms in open lawns Their diet consists of mainly of insects, berries and earthworms. Fruit accounts for 60% of their diet, but young feed primarily on insects and earthworms.

Nesting Behavior: Males arrive on nesting grounds before females, defending the territory by singing and sometimes fighting. Once mated, the female does most of the nest building using a foundation of mud and weaving in twigs, grass and plant fibers. The American Robin can lay 3-7 “robin blue eggs”, on average laying 4. The incubation period is 12-14 days and they leave the nest 14-16 days after hatching. Both parents feed their young and get very aggressive protecting their family.
