Rub-a-dub-dub, Robins in the tub!  A large flock of American Robins (members of the Thrush bird family) arrived in my neighborhood on Feb. 21, 2015.  These are migratory birds in my neighborhood.  I am so glad they are here!

My next door neighbor’s bird bath has been extra-popular with this bunch of Robins.  They came in waves to drink and bath in the cool water.  Yesterday was a warm day here where I live so the Robins had a lot of fun splashing themselves and the other birds on the rim of the decorative concrete bird bath.  I took these pictures both in the morning and the afternoon on Feb. 22, 2015.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

Comments on: "American Robins in the Bird Bath!" (6)

  1. i heard one call here this weekend – always reminds me of home (wisconsin). 🙂

    • Hi Theresa, These are lovely sweet birds. They also are excellent parents to their chicks. I hope they stick around here for the season. Good at catching insects, too. Always a plus here in FL. Have a truly nice afternoon, evening, and tomorrow!

  2. A whole bird bath full of Robins is really cool! We are starting to see a few arriving here already.

  3. Great photos! I think it will be awhile before we get Robins here, seeing as it has been below zero for many nights this month. We usually get them around April. This time of year we get mainly chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches, and titmice. Recently we got a red squirrel at the bird feeder, in addition to the gray squirrels. It is always interesting to see how the wildlife differs in Florida!

    • Hi Cynthia, I was out in my front yard this morning and saw a flock of Carolina Chickadees, a couple of Tufted Titmice and heard a Red-headed Woodpecker. I am hoping you will be seeing more and more of your birds coming soon and your weather improves. Have a wonderful day tomorrow!
