American Robin - Top of this Food Chain

Here in the Colvin Run Habitat we sometimes forget the our most common birds are not resident in other parts of the world. So I was somewhat surprised last fall when I posted photos of the American Robin - very, very common in the eastern U.S. - and a chap from Australia commented that he had never seen a robin.
So as I thought about Australia being in winter as we in the northern hemisphere were in summer, I figured I would post some robin photos. This robin is doing what the robins do best - dig worms from the ground. So to feed the robins, I only have to water the lawn - they love to dig in the soft, wet ground. Great fun - unless you are a worm lower on the food chain.
