Here the American Robin (Turdus migratorius) also known as the robin. It was the firt time I saw this bird and in this travel I saw many of then in Central Park.
Robin is a migratory songbird, with reddish-orange breast. It is widely distributed throughout North America, wintering from southern Canada to central Mexico and along the Pacific Coast. It is the state bird of Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
According to some sources, the American Robin ranks behind only the Red-winged Blackbird as the most abundant, extant land bird in North America.
The bird is active mostly during the day and assembles in large flocks at night. Its diet consists of invertebrates (such as beetle grubs, earthworms, and caterpillars), fruits and berries. It is one of the earliest bird species to lay eggs, beginning to breed shortly after returning to its summer range from its winter range. Its nest consists of long coarse grass, twigs, paper, and feathers, and is smeared with mud and often cushioned with grass or other soft materials.
Robin is between the first birds to sing at dawn, and its song consists of several discrete units that are repeated.
Here in Brazil we have a relative bird named Sabiá very common here. The title was a reference to the duo Batman & Robin.
