The American Robin is a frequent visitor to my yard.
Males have a dark head, yellow bill, black streaks on the throat, and a rusty belly.
Robins feed on insects (especially beetles) and worms. Robins can also eat fruit, seeds, suet, crushed peanuts, sunflower hearts and raisins. They particularly enjoy mealworms.
Robins are big fans of mealworms. You can give them an extra helping hand by soaking dried mealworms in water, giving the robins some valuable moisture from the food.
Robins are not likely to visit a hanging feeder unless there is a platform next to it. You also don’t want to feed birds pieces of bread. While it fills them up, it doesn’t provide the right sort of nutrients or energy they need each day. This is especially bad in winter when birds need lots of good quality food to boost their energy reserves and help them keep warm..
