American Robin – Turdus migratorius
This American Robin was singing its heart out Sunday morning. It was also being territorial, chasing other Robins from the area and returning to its “singing perch.” I don’t mind at all that this Robin woke me up early Sunday morning. I’d much rather hear the song of this beautiful bird than the shrieking wail of our alarm clock.
