For some reason your image is blocked. All I see is "no permission" :(

Welcome to Whatbird, newtothis.

I don't have permission to see the photo either.

Ah... the member has the photo in his Gallery and the Gallery is marked private. But he can't hide it from the all knowing, all seeing Bigfoot.

newtothis, I'm the Moderator of the Whatbird Forums. There was a small issue with your post that I corrected. You had your album marked as private and I changed it to public. You can clearly have a private Gallery if you choose to, but since you posted this bird for identification, I believe that you intended for this to be available for public views.

Yep, American Robin.

We have borrowed Her from our Descendants.

Just a note ... I'm no expert either, newtothis, but thought I would add some habits I'm developing to help learn the birds.

For your American Robin, note:
Yellow beak, black head, rusty breast ... but particularly, notice how the eye ring looks like a "target". That set of features is pretty unique.

Happy birding! and welcome to a fun habit!

I will answer the question that I have highlighted. Yes it's mother, father, and siblings were all American Robins. ;)

They are a very common bird and you will see plenty of them throughout most of the US.

Welcome to Whatbird and the addiction.
