Residence of European Robin Bird’s

  • The forest: Robins usually live in shady and mossy woodlands in backyards.

Such birds are usually dense cold-blooded species that live in damp, shady habitats. They make small patches for singing and walls, banks or rocks for nesting.

  • Food : Insects

The European robin bird’s main diet is insects such as ants and beetles their favorite food. They add seeds and berries to their diet in winter.

European Robin Birds characteristics


Robins generally use two methods to catch insects (and all other invertebrates) through leaves:

They descend from a low perch and return to a perch to pluck prey from the soil and environment. Jumps quickly along the ground and pauses for a moment, flapping its wings and tail, and then jumps again in pursuit of insects, spiders, and various insects.

  • Build a nest: Nest placement cavity usually,

The female robin builds the nest, either 5 meters (15 ft) high or near ground level. They usually build their nests in tree stumps, root piles, banks or ledges, rock crevices, tree hollows, nest boxes, high walls and other human structures.

Description of the nest

Builds tiny nests made of moss, leaves and grasses whereas nests are made of dead leaves and twigs and plant fibres.

  • Nesting Facts: Nesting Period: 10-18 days
  • Egg description: White with variable amounts of red-brown markings.
  • Clutch Size: 4-7 eggs
  • Number of Broods: 1-2 broods
  • Duration of Incubation: 12-21 days

Behavior: Ground forager

 In the United Kingdom and Ireland, robins are commonly found around homes. But elsewhere these birds are very cautious.

Robins are sometimes seen perching conspicuously, foraging or singing, but they often retreat when they see dense vegetation.

They avoid large open fields or fields, instead foraging in small patches of bare ground.

Foraging birds are usually quite energetic, also flapping their wings and tails in bursts of purposeful whooping.

Robins are known to be very territorial birds, with both sexes (male and female) maintaining territories out of season by breeding. Such birds usually form monogamous pairs that last for a single breeding season, or 6 months, but male robins are sometimes seen with two mates at the same time. Across most robin species boundaries, pairs raise two broods per year, producing 4-7 chicks per brood. Female robins are usually busy building nests and hatching eggs. Both sexes of robins feed the nestlings, the robins usually fledge after two weeks, and the male robins continue to feed the young birds when the female birds start their second brood. The view is wonderful.

  • Saving: Least concern

The International Union for Conservation of Nature calls the conservation status of the European robin bird the highest priority, listing robins as Least Concern due to increasing population trends and extremely large population sizes (estimated at 130–201 million individuals).
