*Featured: Songbirds of North America ( Apr 14, 2012)*
While trying to capture the Cardinal today, this Robin landed to the right of me. Looked like it was a little upset with the wind fluffing its feathers; even the tail feathers. Please enjoy.
*Internet Info:* American Robins are fairly large songbirds with a large, round body, long legs, and fairly long tail. Robins are the largest North American thrushes, and their profile offers a good chance to learn the basic shape of most thrushes. Robins make a good reference point for comparing the size and shape of other birds, too.
Color Pattern: American Robins are gray-brown birds with warm orange underparts and dark heads. In flight, a white patch on the lower belly and under the tail can be conspicuous. Compared with males, females have paler heads that contrast less with the gray.
