Focus on Wildlife: The American Robin


This is the first of a weekly series designed to educate the reader about common wildlife species in Pennsylvania. It is written by Bob Garrett for The Daily Item newspaper in Sunbury, Pa.

Is it just my imagination or are there a lot more robins around this year, than in year’s past?

For those of us who are desperately looking for any real sign that this record-breaking, frigid winter will soon end, I can’t think of any more welcome sight than a flock of robins in our backyards.The river is still iced over, the wobbly-legged, newly-born fawns aren’t here yet, that blasted groundhog spotted his shadow and retreated to his winter slumber — but the robins are around, so spring must be right around the corner.

American Robins are the quintessential “early birds.”
