Robin in Garden

I caught this Robin going after the mealworms I put out for the Bluebirds. I did not mind as I like seeing these birds up close. I see spots under the chin which tells me he or she is probably a juvenile, not an adult yet.When they get older they will have an orange-red breast. Some people call them a “Robin red breast”. They are a lot bigger than the Bluebirds but they all get along. That is another reason I did not mind sharing the mealworms in Dustin’s garden.

  1. We have a lot of robins here every year and they nest in our trees. American robins are actually thrushes and not robins, but I don’t care. I had a juvenile that ‘helped me’ when I was putting in the garden this year. It would follow me around and stay within about 10 feet of me, seeming to know that my activities would turn up earthworms, grubs, and insects, which it was all too happy to remove from the garden.

  2. It is a good size juvenile robin indeed! At this time of year, we have many different stages of robin around. I saw a baby one yesterday, took some pictures but didn’t download them yet!
