Robins in the Grass

A few days ago when the Eastern Bluebirds and Starlings were busily investigating our yard for worms grubs and other insects, a tiny group of American Robins came around to do the same.  American Robins love poking around on lawns for worms.  They have a long slender but strong bill that helps them pull up worms and insects from the turf.  American Robins are beautiful.  These birds have a burnt-orange colored breast and medium-brown back and head.  They have a broken white ring around each eye.  American Robins are not here too often but do live in the woods down the street.  I am always happy to see birds here in the yards.  I snapped these pictures in my yard on December 30, 2011.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
