With his bright red-orange breast and his happy cheer-up, cheerily song, the robin is one of our favorite signs of spring.
Robins appear in popular songs ("Rockin' Robin" is a favorite here), nursery rhymes, and legends. A color is even named after the characteristic blue of their eggs!
My children are fascinated watching the robins hop across our yard in search of worms. Noticing seasonal changes helps children feel more connected with the world around them. The cycle gives life a reassuringly consistent rhythm.
