General information about American Robin :

Known as the The Red-Breasted Thrush or American Red-Breasted Robin.
The American Robin's diet consists of invertebrates (such as beetle grubs and caterpillars), fruits and berries.
Its nest consists of long coarse grass, twigs, paper, and feathers, and is smeared with mud and often cushioned with grass or other soft materials. It is among the first birds to sing at dawn, and its song consists of several discrete units that are repeated.
The head varies from jet black to gray, with white eye arcs and white supercilia. The throat is white with black streaks, and the belly and undertail coverts are white. The Robin has a brown back and a reddish-orange breast, varying from a rich red maroon to peachy orange. The bill is mainly yellow with a variably dark tip, the dusky area becoming more extensive in winter, and the legs and feet are brown.
It hunts visually, not auditorially (by hearing).
The female builds the nest.
Lays 3-5 light blue eggs.
Both the male and female take care of the chicks.

The beak of a mature robin is yellow.
I would describe the song as being quick flouries of arpegiated triplets, quadruplets, or even pentuplets, separated by a second or so of silence.

The song varies regionally, and its style varies by time of day.
