Friday's Foto

Within the past week, large numbers of migrating American Robins have descended on NYC's parks and backyards. This thrush's arrival in March is recognized by many as being the first sign of Spring. According to "The Birds of North America", it is the "most abundant, and most widespread North American thrush." Three states have designated the robin as their state bird:  Connecticut, Michigan and Wisconsin. Robins are probably the most common breeding bird in Brooklyn's Prospect Park.
