These are American Robins. There were about four of the Robins here the other day. They are not around much in the Winter here so seeing a few was a big treat. I took these pictures in my yard on Feb. 5, 2013. The American Robin is an insect-eating medium-sized bird. They are members of the Thrushes and not true Robins like those found in Great Britain. The bird has a bright burnt-orange breast, a grayish-brown back and head and a distinctive broken white ring around each eye. They have sharp yellow bills.
The male and female Robins really look very much alike, except that the males are a bit brighter in color. I am amused when I hear Robins as they sound to me very “Blabby”. The sound is a high-pitched thin and loud sort of “Blab-blabty-blab”. Quite the vocalist! I have been seeing more America Robins in other spots around the community so this wave of migration seems to have arrived for this bird. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture, Enjoy! P.S. I just went out and to my amazement, I saw the big flock of American Robins had arrived. I guess these few birds I saw the other day were the advance scouts. I will post more pictures of the American Robins tomorrow. Wildlifewatcher
