American robin

The American Robin, the largest of the North American thrushes, is found over most of North America in the summer months. Its familiar song, cheer-up, cheer cheer cheer-up , begins well before daybreak and in many regions signals the start of spring. It is notorious for its ability to find, catch and eat earthworms. Contrary to popular wisdom, earthworms are found by sight rather than by sound. Diet also consists of beetles, grasshoppers, other insects, and many fruits including grapes, cherries, pokeberries, and mistletoe, and in southern states, the fruits of the Sabal Palm.

Adults are gray or blackish above and brick red below. A white patch occurs in the vent area. Females are generally duller with a more grayish head
