American Robin


American Robins are irregular visitors in the winters. Some years they are around all winter, sometimes they seem to stay late in the fall and then leave, and sometimes they are absent for long periods and then show up in late winter. Their presence is always very much appreciated. Some people collect mountain ash berries and freeze them, then use them to entice the robins to stay. They are very attracted to fruit in the winter, so try planting fruit-bearing shrubs that hold their fruit through at least part of the winter around your home. The best choices are American mountain ash, high-bush cranberry, hawthorn and wild rose. Robins are one bird that you probably never have to worry about providing a nest site – they are able to build nests in everything from front door wreaths to small trees and shrubs.
