Robins are quite easy to identify, with their orangey-red breasts and brown backs. They are one of the few birds to sing their tinkling song all year too. You’ll often hear them singing from a bush or tree, then see them flitting down to the ground to pick up a worm, or other food. If you are digging in your garden, you might see them keeping a close eye out for any grubs that you uncover.
Male and female robins look the same and usually the only time they are confused for other birds is when they are young, newly-fledged birds without their red breast. If you’re not sure what you’ve seen though, why not try our bird identifier? Just fill in a few details and we’ll help you to work out what it was.
