Robins

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!

    that last shot is really cute – sort of dreamy. 🙂

  2. Pretty pictures, and maybe you can get some shots of the babies this spring. They always look so cute and mad!

  3. Nice shots! Our summer Robins are here now too. I love to hear them in the evenings especially.
