Robins have not been around the grass too much in recent days because they are busily nesting up in the trees here. Robins are great insect-getters. They eat lawn grubs, worms, beetles and other yard insects mostly. The males and females look pretty similar with the female a little less colorful. The Robins here in the United States are not the same as the European Robins. The American Robin is a member of the Thrush family of birds. I am very much looking forward to seeing the little juvenile Robins arrive and be out and about in a few weeks. The Robins are super parents with the father Robin having a lot of parenting duties. I took these pictures about a week ago in my yard. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
