The Robins Return

posted in: Birds | 0

We always hear the robins, Turdus migratorius before we see them, and that has been happening for a couple of weeks now.  Last week on our walk along the Waterfront Trail we spotted several robins hopping around, but they were a bit too quick to photograph.   We’ve seen them flitting in the garden, in and out of the cedar trees perhaps looking for a good nesting place.

Here is robin singing his spring song in the back tree.  This is a migratory bird in our area and always a welcome site after a long winter.  They always seem to arrive and then we get more snow.  This has happened this year too.

The American Robin is named after the British robin because of its red breast.  But the American and British robins aren’t related.  They belong to the thrush family, in fact the largest thrush in North America.   It is one of the earliest birds to lay eggs.
