The American Robin is a familiar sight in early spring as it runs across the lawns around the parking lot, only to stop abruptly to pull a worm from the ground. The brightly plumaged males busily court the duller females through late spring and early summer. When conditions are favorable, up to three broods of young can be produced in one breeding season. Rather haggard looking adults can be seen towards the end of July as they are pursued by young birds noisily begging for food.
Outside of the breeding season, robins tend to be less conspicuous at Salter Grove as they spend more time foraging and roosting in shrubbery and trees.
