American Robin In Our Yard

I love my jacuzzi tub!

Isn't our American Robin cute?

Hubby took these photos this week.  

The robins sure enjoy our bird bath jacuzzi on our deck.


Sitting Pretty!


I think this may be a male Robin.

I love the warm orange chest of our American Robins.

Just in case you don't have Robins where you live here is some additional information:


American Robins are fairly large songbirds with a large, round body, long legs, and fairly long tail. Robins are the largest North American thrushes.  The quintessential early bird, American Robins are common sights on lawns across North America, where you often see them tugging earthworms out of the ground. Robins are popular birds for their warm orange breast, cheery song, and early appearance at the end of winter. Though they’re familiar town and city birds, American Robins are at home in wilder areas, too, including mountain forests and Alaskan wilderness.


Here's a Robin's song (this is not our bird):

  1. Sandy, the robin is just about the only "colorful" bird I see in my area. Great photos. We lost so many birds when they sprayed for West Nile virus. Haven't seen any bluejays or cardinals in a long while. xo,

  2. I saw a lot more robins when I lived in Oklahoma than I do in Texas. They are beautiful birds (of course I've rarely met a bird I didn't like. Well, maybe the "death" birds).
