07.03.12 (67/366) American Robin

I've been after one of these little beauties for ever......well about a year :)

 

American Robin or North American Robin (Turdus migratorius) is a migratory songbird of the thrush family. It is named after the European Robin because of its reddish-orange breast, but they are not closely related.. The American Robin is widely distributed throughout North America, wintering south of Canada from Florida to central Mexico and along the Pacific Coast. It has seven subspecies, but only Turdus migratorius confinis in the southwest is particularly distinctive, with pale gray-brown underparts. It is the state bird of Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin. It is a migratory songbird of the thrush family and sounds pretty too!

 

There was a huge flock of them and they all looked like they've been feeding well!
