back AMERICAN ROBIN Next

American Robin (Turdus migratorius).  The robin is the most widespread thrush in North American thanks to a tolerance for human-modified habitats.  An American Robin can produce three successful broods in one year.  On average, though, only 40 percent of nests successfully produce young.  Only 25 percent of those fledged young survive to November.  From that point on, about half of the robins alive in any year will make it to the next. Despite the fact that a lucky robin can live to be 14 years old, the entire population turns over on average every six years (Cornell Lab of Ornithology).
