This American Robin was so busy digging for worms and making mud pies with his bill that he wasn’t too bothered by my close presence. Robins spend part of the winter here in the Deep South before heading back to more northerly habitats during the warmer months. They usually show up in flocks and are often accompanied by cedar waxwings. They eat insects, worms, and berries. I love their upright stance, their large inquisitive eyes, and their bright russets breasts.
