Robins nest and summer in my neighbourhood. One pair nests each year on my porch light. They are not competative for nesting material, food or bathing. It is not uncommon to see 6 or more working in the same bed. Some years there is a second nesting in late July/early August.

I observed an American robin in Longmont, CO (zone 5) yesterday on December 30th. I was surprised because all the other robins have migrated. This area has had sub-zero temps and snow in December, even though now the temps have fluctuated up to 60 or so. Why would this bird stay in Colorado when the rest of the robins have migrated to warmer areas? How does it survive?

Surprising as it may seem, not all Robins migrate south in the winter. Normally, a few Robins over winter here in Anchorage, Alaska. They can survive temperatures lower than 20 below zero Fahrenheit.

We see large flocks of the American Robin in our area usually in the winter months, especially mid January through February. They love the berries of the Brazilian Pepper, Dahoon Holly, Cabbage Palm, and there are always many of them feeding on the berries of the Sugarberry trees.

I was told that robins are ground feeders and won't eat at feeders. I have 2 that eat peanuts and a peanut, suet mixture I make and spread on a board and bread or leftover pieces of nut or fruit breads that I break up, they don't seem to want anything else but are here many times a day. Right after we had snow I had 5. I had one that stayed all winter. It's a pleasure to have them around.

I saw my first Robin of the season today. Very happy that spring is not far behind.

My husband seen three or four Robins in our front yard today,(2/22/2010). This always gets our hopes up for spring to be getting here soon.

As plentiful as these birds are in our area (they are here all year around) I never get tired of seeing them and I try to encourage them as much as possible. They are surprisingly tolerant of other birds, so I don't have to decide between them and the field sparrows, bluebirds, and juncos that frequent the feeder.
Fortunately, they seem to find my garden very hospitable (plenty of the insects they eat -- I even saw one snatch a wasp out of the air) and I see several in a single day.

happy to read comments about the robin's ability to deal with winter conditions - we had many robins in the area until very late in November which is quite unusual for our area.

We have large flocks of Robins in central VA that have not migrated this year. Usually it is late Feb. or March when the first few appear. They are feeding on the large trees that have berries, but I wonder what they will eat when the ground remains frozen and the berries are all gone. A few have come to the ground around the feeders, but don't linger.

Where did all the Robins come from? There's been a flock consisting of at least 25-30 in my backyard and around the neighboorhood for the last week. I have a lot of flower beds with mulch and they love digging in that for worms, except they made havoc of my moss bed. I love watching them in the bird bath, they love water! Is it normal for them to be here this time of year? Although I've never had Flowering Quince and Yellow Bells blooming this time of year before either.

I am always happy to have robins in my garden. They enjoy the baths like the other birds do and are fond of the berries on my fruiting trees. They tend to nest in exactly the same location year after year. Robins are beautiful and sociable, but I love most of all their bold cheerful singing, which is so melodious and original!

A sure sign of imminent spring, flocks of these birds started appearing in my neighborhood in February this year! Some like to sit in the top of my blue spruce tree and twitter happily. I always enjoy their happy song.

Has anyone else experienced an American Robin frequenting their feeder? I think this poor bird is confused and I have seen him eat various types of seeds daily. Then, yesterday, I saw him/her take seeds away - presumably to the nest!
Maybe I'm confused, but I always thought that robins ate worms and bugs?

This must be my year for Robins. A few weeks ago I was working in the dirt in my side yard and noticed a beat up looking robin. It kept sticking around. I figured it wanted to poke around in the moist dirt I was digging in. I threw him a worm. He kept with me the rest of the morning and this healthy robin kept chasing him. Finally the beat up robin came closer to me when the healthy robin approached. Eventually I had to go to work. When I came home that evening it was still light out, the robin was sitting there as if waiting for me. I changed clothes and came back out to work in the garden and soon he was right next to me. I threw him more worms and the mean bird was there too. It got dark and I figured out in the meantime this little guy couldn't fly. I caught him and called the collision bird monitors. They came the next day to take him to the bird sanctuary where they help birds get well. Now this week another robin has befriended me and I throw him grubs I find while working the dirt. He flies well and chirps loudly if I don't feed him grubs. He is picky and will not eat earthworms unless I am having a hard time finding grubs. This bird gets very close. This whole robin thing is very entertaining to me as I work in the garden. I wouldn't be surprised if this bird comes and sits on my shoulder one day.
