Robins in Winter
Robins are nomadic in wintertime, and move to find sources of food. This study begins with a mid-winter survey to assess where robins are present before migration begins. Are you seeing robins? Let us know!

Welcome Robins, Welcome Spring
The return of robins is a favorite sign of spring in northern regions. You can track migration from the southern states to the Arctic, where robins don't usually arrive until May.

What to Watch For
Use the spring checklist to discover what to watch for this spring—wintering robins, first robins, waves of robins, first earthworms, and nesting behavior.

What to Listen For
When a robin reaches its breeding territory, the bird announces its arrival by singing. Tracking robin song is a simple way to follow spring migration across the continent. Learn the robin's true song.

Thank You, Citizen Scientists
