Have you seen these plump reddish-orange breasted birds looking for bugs, grubs and worms? The robin is usually our first sign of spring

The American robin. We get excited to see them migrate back to the area at the end of winter and early spring. After that long flight from southern Canada, central Mexico and along the Pacific Coast, they're hungry and look for fat earthworms on your lawn, golf courses, gardens, and pastures. It's blissful to wake to their song first thing in the morning and gives us hope that Spring will arrive.

From April -July, some of us will notice blue or speckled egg halves on the ground proving a robin's nest is near. The average robin will lay 3 to 5 eggs that will hatch 14 days later. They'll continue to do this 2 to 3 times over the summer but only 25 % of the baby robins will live through the first year. Most robins will start to head south at the end of August so enjoy them while they're here.
