American Robin Turdus migratorius
This is a large songbird with a grey back and wings, red under parts, dark head and white eye crescents.
Robins eat invertebrates, especially earthworms. In the early spring, they may eat fruit, suet, mealworms and cracked sunflower seeds placed on the ground.
The males and females have the same colors except the females are slightly duller.
Robins will build their nests in a tree or shrub on a horizontal limb, 5 to 20 feet above the ground. The nest will be made from grass with a center layer of mud. Robins will not build their nests in birdhouses, but you can hang breeding platforms for them to nest on. The clutch will contain 3 to 7 eggs with an incubation period of 12 to 14 days.
