The early bird gets the worm.
T is for turdis migratorius, or much more commonly known as the American Robin.
Just like the sparrow, from the letter "S" post, the robin is incredibly common. As common as they are however, they are a striking bird with their dark head and wings and their red breast. The males are even richer in color during mating season. You often find them on lawns pulling worms out of the ground, in trees gathering insects, or enjoying berries or seed on bushes.
This past year I had the pleasure of also viewing two robin families raise a clutch of eggs.
I thought this nest was so pretty sitting in a hydrangea bush, made up of the usual twigs and sticks, but also supported/decorated with dried hydrangea flowers! Is this nature or Home Goods!?!?
I'll leave you with this last photo of a single robin hanging out with a handful of starlings. I often find robins amongst other birds or wildlife and they are always a pleasure to view.
Today's earrings are seed beads brick stitched around a silver metal connector. All commenters who comment on during the A-Z challenge will be entered in a drawing to win 7 pairs of earrings!
Thanks for stopping by, please stop by tomorrow for the letter "U".
