Robins belong to the thrush family. They are all wonderful singers and some of the first birds heard in the early morning before sunrise. These birds can be found in the far north and all the way into Mexico. In Canada, everyone awaits the arrival of the American Robin in March, as it is considered one of the first signs of spring.
There are three types of robins that live, or have been recorded seen in North America. The American Robin lives in all parts of the continent and is the most common. The other two are the Rufus-backed Robin and the White-throated Robin. These two robins are more native to Mexico and Central America but have sometimes been in the southern States.
