THE NATURAL WORLD OF SOUTHERN VANCOUVER ISLAND THROUGH THE LENS OF CAPTAIN YVES- PART 23

Our good friend the Robin, with its warm orangey red chest, cheery song and appearances in winter often make people think of The Christmas Period.

This species are a common sight across Victoria, on lawns munching away on a fat earthworm but also in the city too.

They’re no stranger to a bird bath as well!

The American Robin is a breeding machine, they can produce three successful broods in one year!

When foraging, Robins run a bit and the stop abruptly. In longer grasses Robins may hop or flit just above the grass level to get a birds eye view…

Robins eat a lot of fruit in the colder seasons. Upon eating honeysuckle berries exclusivley, they can sometimes become intoxicated!
