A Stately Bird: The American Robin is the state bird of Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
Robins eat mostly worms, grubs, caterpillars, and grasshoppers. They search for insects by both sound and sight. They also eat ample amounts of fruits and berries, when available.
Robins are one of the first birds to lay eggs in the spring. First, the female builds a nest of grass, small twigs, feathers, and even scraps of paper. She binds the nest together with mud. Then, the inside of the nest is lined with soft grasses. The nest is 5-11 feet above the ground, often in the nook of a tree.
Robins lay 3-5 light blue eggs. The eggs hatch in 14 days. The mother robin feeds where chicks primarily worms. The chicks stay in the nest for two weeks. After leaving the nest, both parents help protect the fledgling birds and help them to feed.
Hawks, cats, and snakes are common predators of these birds. Many animals are a threat to robin eggs and young chicks. These include hawks, squirrels, blue jays, crows, and ravens.
