Edna Millar took this photo of a robin in her flower bed after a heavy rain. The quintessential early bird, American Robins are common sights on lawns across North America, where you often see them tugging earthworms out of the ground. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, robins are popular birds for their warm orange breast, cheery song, and early appearance at the end of winter. Though they’re familiar town and city birds, American Robins are at home in wilder areas, too, including mountain forests and Alaskan wilderness.
