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!
