The American Robin can sometimes be placed into the category of birds called "trash birds" - birds that are so common and regular that they clutter the search for the rare or uncommon species. Whether or not an American Robin is considered a "trash bird" obviously depends heavily on where you are located. If you saw one in, for example, South America, it would definitely not be a "trash bird". At South River Falls Picnic Area, however, it is probably often considered a "trash bird".
After I arrived at the picnic area last Sunday I scanned the area for any bird activity. It was cold for May, so not many birds were active. There were a few Robins flitting about on the grass, so I got my camera fingers warmed up for the day by taking some pictures.
