American Robin

March 16th, 2007

Few birds herald the Spring as does the American Robin.  First arriving in larger flocks in February, they soon split up into singles and pairs, and begin calling brightly in the mornings.  This ubiquitous bird is a fixture on grassy lawns across the country, but also in fields and woodlands.  Many a child has found a young robin, fallen out of the nest.  And many too have watched the Robin with sideways glance pull up a juicy worm from the backyard.  When I hear the saying, “The early bird gets the worm” it is the Robin that comes to mind.
