The American Robin has reddish to orange front feathers and feed upon grass lands and forests during the day. At night they flock into larger groups and rest until about 6AM. Besides cats, snakes and squirrels which may be too common in the outside wilderness, these birds don't have many more enemies. They are found often times picking worms out of lawns. Their main diet is berries. Other than berries they eat insects, worms and larva. The Robin’s chicks are usually feed with worms.

Beautiful Bird in Chains - Deprived of freedom?
Oh my! This is a pretty bird. Reddish to orange front feathers make them really attractive. Indeed the robins are one of the most beautiful birds around. I wish I could own one but no, they'd rather be left alone to live in freedom. They have wings to fly around and enjoy the life God has given to them. I pity those caged and chained birds in aviary or zoo. I found it too cruel for them to be deprived of the freedom to fly around the whole earth.
