Robins

With three different types of birds sharing the common name 'robin' and none of them being closely related to one another, this songbird can be a little tough to sort out. North American Robins, which belong to the thrush family and were named Robins for their resemblance to the European Robin, are native to parts of Canada and most of the contiguous United States. Known for being a sign of spring, these birds are a welcome sight to many in North America. The European Robin (also called the 'true robin'), which is part of the flycatcher family, is found all across Europe and even into Western Siberia and Northern Africa. European Robins are associated with the Christmas holiday but can also be found in British and French folklore. And last but certainly not least, there are the Australasian Robins. These little birds belong to the genus Petroicidae and can be found in Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and on many Pacific islands.

What can you feed a baby robin?

i found a baby Robbin and its wings were hurt badly so i found it a cage and a nest and put it in the cage. Make sure to cover out side the cage with thin curtain so that the robbin will feel safe. This goes for all birds. I dug some worms and as soon as it opened its mouth i put it in. DO NOT FORCE IT DOWN. Now in a couple of weeks i am going to free it!! It is looking healthy now.

Just a note..You do not have to leave your baby robin outside..They can eat wet dog food or worms or even scrambled eggs. I gave mine some wet cherrios because it's whole grain and he needed a drink. Often parent robins will have a worm, some greens and other stuff to feed the babies.. They need fiber too..and high protein..

I read an article that allowed the baby outside play times..monitored of course..eventually..baby flew away and would not come back..this is the desired outcome..Just pick a safe release/play area. It is important to allow baby to take and swallow the offering on his/her own.

What is another name for a robin?

Answer

About the only reasonably common alternative name in English is red-breast.

There are many completely different bird species that are called robins.

The original species to be given the name is the European Robin, which has the Latin name Erithacus rubecula

In North America, there is a kind of thrush called the American Robin. Its Latin name is Turdus migratorius.

Several species in the taxonomic family Petroicidae are called robins. They are native to Australia and New Zealand.

The Red-billed Leiothrix, Latin name Leiothrix lutea, is known as the Pekin Robin in the UK, elsewhere it is known as the Japanese nightinglae, Chinese Robin, or Japanese Hill Robin.

There are many other species throughout Africa and Asia that are called "robin".

All over the world, wherever European man has travelled, he has looked for a friendly small bird that spends lots of time of the ground, even better if it had red/orange on its chest - anything that reminded him of the garden (European) robin. In Japan there is even a bird that is virtually identical to the European robin unless it is examined closely - but it is not particularly closely related - the Japanese robin is luscinia akahige (a very close relative of the nightingale).

There is also the common name of the Robin Redbreast.
