Both the male and female American Robin share the same colouration. They are brown-grey on top with bright red undersides. The male red colouration is much brighter than the females however. The male American Robin also grows black feathers around their eyes during breeding season to attract females.


Their range extends all across North America during the breeding and warmer seasons. They occupy most woodland areas and can even be found in open fields, if there is sufficient shrubbery for a nesting site. During the winter months, the American Robin migrates to South America.
