The American robin (Turdus migratorius) is a migratory songbird of the true thrush genus and Turdidae, the wider thrush family. It is widely distributed throughout North America, wintering from southern Canada to central Mexico and along the Pacific Coast.
The American robin’s breeding habitat is woodland and more open farmland and urban areas. It becomes less common as a breeder in the southernmost part of the Deep South of the United States, and there prefers large shade trees on lawns. Its winter habitat is similar, but includes more open areas.
Its diet consists of invertebrates (such as beetle grubs, earthworms, and caterpillars), fruits, and berries.
