American Robin in Color

I posted a black and white photo of a Robin in my garden yesterday. If you missed my post here is a link:  Robin ~ Black and White Friday

This bird is called an American Robin. They are fairly large songbirds with a large, round body, long legs, and fairly long tail. Robins are the largest North American thrushes.

I had two families that raised babies this spring in my yard. They chased away the bluebirds, but to be fair, they arrived first. And they are bigger than the bluebirds, so they won this year.

The photo above is a female robin looking for worms for the babies. She is in Dustin’s garden. You can see the bench to the right of her. 

Below are more photos of the robin, one of the male. They have a brighter pronounced color and the photo shows how they got their name “Robin Red Breast”. They have a bright pronounced breast and the dark orange color is beautiful.

The first photo below is a female sitting on a nest in one of my pine trees.
