Is It The Same Robin?

  Autumn brings robins to feed on tree fruit and berries. Are the robins you see now the same robins that you saw in your garden last summer? Some robins do remain year 'round. Others spend only the winter, having nested farther north. John James Audubon may have been the first to band birds, in order to learn more about migration. You can learn more about banding birds from the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center.
