Probably the most common visitor to the British garden. Resident all year round, robins are fiercly territorial; during the spring and summer this territoriality is for breeding, but at other times individual robins hold territories for feeding.
Breeding begins in late March and they normally have 2-3 clutches a year.
The juvenile Robin has speckled buff-brown upper parts and underparts. They have no red feathers so that adult birds do not attack them in territorial disputes. The speckled feathers are lost in a partial moult when the bird is about two to three months old.
