Robins have a very good eye sight. One third of Robin's food are earth worms, invertebrates, insects, caterpillars, sometimes grasshoppers, while two third are berries of wild or cultivated plants.
Robin's breeding places are mostly in the northern part of America, Alaska and Canada.
"Am I not beautiful?
You often can see my nest in woodland, more open farmland and urban areas. Not often I breed in the southern United States. But please protect large shade trees on meadows, I like them very much because they are home to many insects. And I love berries, don't eat them all, berries and fruits are a big part of my diet."
Because of more humans, more houses, more roads, more noise, wild birds are often difficult to watch. Birding can be a challenging activity because all birds are naturally skittish. You need patience, however, the rewards are well worth it; few other activities can bring such a sense of wonder, satisfaction, connecting with nature, as well as peaceful solitude -- in todayís busy world.
The best time to see most birds is usually earlier in the morning - the evening is less productive unless you are looking for nocturnal species.
