Scientific Name: Turdus migratorius
Common Name: American Robin The American Robin is named after the European Robin because of its reddish-orange breast, though the two species are not closely related. It has a very wide distribution and though migratory, it may be found wintering in areas as far north as southern Canada. The American Robin is active mostly during the day and assembles in large flocks at night. It is one of the earliest bird species to lay eggs, beginning to breed shortly after returning to its summer range from its winter range. Its nest consists of long coarse grass, twigs, paper, and feathers, and is smeared with mud and often cushioned with grass or other soft materials. It is among the first birds to sing at dawn, and its song consists of several discrete units that are repeated. It's diet include insects but has adapted its diet to include berries and other seeds.
