Update Settling in... Journey North

What do robins do when they first arrive back on their territory in spring? In fine weather males sing, investigate their territory, and feed. If it's cold or or wet, the males get quieter as they focus on feeding and taking shelter in thick conifer branches. Look and listen to see and hear these differences.

"This robin, the first sighting in my yard, was perched on a branch, taking in the sun on a calm, sunny morning," reported Judy Bostow from Benedict, North Dakota on March 26th.
