Tri Cities – A Haven for the American Robin
The Tri-Cities, made up of Pasco, Kennewick and Richland in Washington State are an ideal place for bird lovers to make their home. The combination of mild weather, healthy vegetation, and relatively low pollution, make the area a haven for birds and bird-lovers alike.
Among the birds to watch out for in this area is the American Robin. While the American Robin can be found all across the country, the Tri-Cities have one of the healthiest American Robin populations.
The American Robin's Song
Aside from its rich plumage of bright red and black, the American Robin stands out among local birds because of its beautiful song. The American Robin’s song is distinctively unique because of its simple complexity. Their song is made up of basic units sang in a random patterns, so that not one of their songs is exactly the same. The American Robin’s songs sound wonderfully complex but are actually just made up of very few sets of notes, combined so magically in one melodic whole.
The American Robin loves to make sounds. In fact it has one of the richest vocabularies of sounds, with each one having a unique meaning and purpose. The breadth of emotion shown by the sounds is considered as proof that animals can feel and express emotions.
If you live in the areas of Pasco, Kennewick, or Richland, you can watch the dusk set in with the American Robin singing a song of goodbye to the light. If you hear singing as night falls, chances are, it is the American Robin. While most singing birds have retired and are getting ready to sleep, the American Robin is often heard serenading the sun, as if boding it farewell and thanking it for gift of another day.
Make Your Home a Bird Sanctuary
The most compelling reason why birds will stay in one area is if there is an adequate supply of food and if there is provision for shelter. If you live in the Tri-Cities area, it is very easy to make your property an American Robin sanctuary.
Birds love Pasco, Richland, and Kennewick for its clean air and mild weather that makes it possible for them to remain during the winter. It does not take much to make your land bird-friendly. Because the birds are already there, all you have to do is make them stay.
Trees and plants are any birds’ best friends because it provides them both with food and protection. Aside from attracting birds, trees and plants can make any home more beautiful and inviting.
If you are planning to make your home a home for the American Robin, as well as many other birds, it is a simple matter of knowing what the birds like to eat and what they use as shelter, and planting them in your property. After the birds realize that have all they need, all you have to do is sit back and listen to the beautiful American Robin melodies as they serenade you with their haunting song that reflects the mysteries and magic of life.
