Robins are a sign of spring in the watershed. Robins are very common, and you have probably seen them hopping around in your yard. You can always identify a robin by their gray backs and fantastic orange-red bellies. 

Have you ever heard the saying, "the early bird gets the worm?" For Robins, that saying is true! Robins like to snack on worms in the morning, when they are more likely to be sitting above ground. In the afternoon, they switch to eating berries. 

Robin nests are easy to spot, because robins lay bright blue eggs.
