It’s the early bird that catches the worm and this New World thrush is its poster child! During spring and summer, you will see American robins, the largest thrush in North America, nibbling said worm on your lawn. These little munchers start just before the sun rises. Their warm orange breasts shake busily as they chirp their merry song, nabbing worms from under the dewy fresh grass.
Warblers breed and feed in areas of mature coniferous and deciduous trees. Come winter, these tough survivors don’t migrate to the tropics but find ways to live on berries in parks and open pine forests, making it the main winter warbler in North America.
Yellow-rumped warblers travel together in small flocks and appear to be in constant motion. It is fascinating to watch them feeding in flight, darting from branch to branch to catch their prey of flying insects!
