Wild Bird Wednesday 609 - American Robin

Following on from last week's post about the European Robin, this week we have the American Robin (Turdus migratorius).  This Robin is a Thrush, and as the second part of its scientific name suggests, it migrates!

I saw this bird in Ontario, which I think is more or less at the northern edge of its year round range.  As you go further north in Canada this species becomes a summer visitor.

You can certainly see why this bird was called a Robin!

  1. Hello Stewart:=)
    I'm back after three weeks away from blogging. I posted a couple of European Robins, and I will go to see your last post about them when I have finished commenting this striking American Robin, it is a beautiful bird and beautifully photographed.
    All the best

  2. Our robins are back on Prince Edward Island now. A great sign of spring.

  3. Always feels good to see the robin! Even though you are heading into a beautiful autumn. Aloha friend

  4. Very sharp and so much details

  5. I think they were voguing for you, or at least posing nicely.

  6. That burnt orange breast is handsome! Lovely!
