Robin, Hummingbird

This cell phone picture of a robin is disappointing because I can’t zoom very much on the phone, and even zooming a little bit causes a loss in sharpness.

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius) is a common bird in the United States, and I have multiple pictures that I have taken in the past. Here’s a frame from my archives that I don’t think I used before, although I have many similar ones. Robins often forage for earthworms in the grass. 

I’ve been filling my hummingbird feeders but so far I have not gotten a picture of one this year, so here’s another picture from my files.


  1. ...we have a bumper crop of robins this year!

  2. Hello,
    I have been hearing a lot of Robins lately. Love the cute hummer! Take care, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead.

  3. I am still looking for my first hummingbird of the year.

  4. I've often just cropped down on the far shots of robins...but they still aren't that sharp. Smart little birds.

  5. I've seen a number of robins this year.
