Known for their cheerful song; the American Robin is a common visitor to a large portion of the U.S. They can be seen on residential lawns foraging for worms while also visiting remote forested areas. In general, they produce three broods each year with an average of one survivor the first year, a necessity to keep their population numbers stable. Many of these birds will not migrate and spend the winter in their breeding territory, depending on the weather conditions. In the winter they sometimes roost in large numbers, it is not unusual to see over 100,000 birds in one area. This is a single plate etching that is entirely hand painted with transparent watercolors. The Robin is depicted life size.
