In My Backyard

Recently I shared with you about the great Christmas bird hunt. The goal is to find out how birds are migrating and keep tract of the health of bird as well. I thought I would share about a bird that you can find in my backyard many days

The American Robin is a migratory songbird. State bird of Connecticut, Michigan and Wisconsin. Ranked among the top of the most abundant extant land bird in North America. The robin is active during the day time and takes care of their flocks at night. They dine on invertebrates like beetles, grub, earthworms, and caterpillars. Also found in their diets are fruits and berries. Robins make their nest of long coarse grass, twis, paper and feathers. Put together by smearing mud. You will often hear the song of the robin early in the morning as they are often the first song bird to start singing. Predators that like to dine on robins include hawks, cats, large snakes.


  1. the robin is so adorable! my cat would have loved watching a robin in our yard. she was an indoor cat so we didn't let her near the birds but she loved watching them

  2. yes I am sure most birds and cats don't get along that way
