The American Robin is perhaps the most easily recognized bird in North America.
Even people who know little or nothing about birds,know what a Robin looks like.
This bird is commonly seen in summer,probing the lawn for worms.
In Manitoba,we sometimes get to see a Robin in winter.
When they stay in the area for winter,they usually feed on fruits that have remained on the trees.This bird also came to a heated bird bath for a drink.
Not only is the Robin a beautiful bird,but,its song is so uplifting.
The cheer-up,cheerily can be heard repeatedly.
A young Ronin has a spotted breast and as you can see often has the leftovers of the downy baby feathers showing.
This male is no doubt keeping an eye on his territory.
For the last two years we have had the Robins nesting on top of this light on our house.
This is perhaps one of the safest places for them
Before long these birds will be back in our area and we will again be treated to their lovely songs.Hurry back my friends.
THIS IS THE DAY TO MAKE YOUR MORNING GOOD,
YOUR NOONTIME BETTER,
AND YOUR NIGHT BEST BY PLACING THEM IN GOD'S CARE.
