American Robin

Bird of the Week

Have you ever seen this bird before?  
I bet you can find one in your backyard.

What do you notice about it?

What colour is it’s beak?

It’s legs?

What about it’s wings?

The American Robin isn’t actually a robin at all. It’s a thrush and a large one at that. It’s named after the true Robin that lives in the UK and is much smaller.

Our American Robin’s are one of the first birds to sing in the morning and sounds a bit like someone saying, “cheerily cheer up cheer up, cheerily cheer up cheer up”.

Did you know robin’s eggs are blue?

In your kit this week are some pieces to build a robin and paste it into your nature journal.
When you are done you can label your picture with the name of the bird.

Here is a picture of mine. I’d love to see yours.
