American Robin photographs   Save
Alvin Staffan Natural History Collection
Description: Two photographs show an American Robin, Turdus migratorius, feeding its young. The robin is found in all of Ohio's 88 counties and is distinguished by its orangish-red chest. Although not common in the 18th century, robin populations expanded in Ohio as forests were cleared and more space converted to farmland. Robins eat worms, berries, and small insects. In the spring and early summer, robins lay two to three clutches of pale blue eggs. The photographs measure 3" x 3" (7.62 x 7.62 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
