American Robin Behavior

The American robin is mostly active during the day. This bird eats fruits, berries, worms, grubs and caterpillars. Its main enemies include hawks, cats and larger snakes. American robins forage on lawns, and are vulnerable to pesticide poisoning. American robins are territorial birds, but only when defending their nest site. They are very vocal birds and their songs sounds like "cheerily, cheer up, cheer up". The male is the most vocal; it sings in the early morning and late afternoon. It will also sing to attract a mate. In autumn robins gather in flocks in order to migrate. Flocks may include 50-100 birds traveling together.
