    INFORMATION ABOUT American Robin

    The American Robin is a familiar backyard bird to most people in North America. Despite their reputation as a harbinger of spring, they are present year-round in most of the lower 48 states, breeding as far north as the Arctic region and wintering as far south as northern Central America. A variety of subspecies with some variations in plumage are present throughout their range. They have a varied diet that includes a variety of arthropods and berries. They are known for gathering in large flocks outside of the breeding season, often mixing with other birds such as Varied Thrushes and Cedar Waxwings.
