    The male robins come first because they want to check out the land
    so that there aren't dangerous things around like foxes, cats, raccoons,
    and other animals like that. They also make sure that there are plenty of
    trees and other supplies like:water, food, and nest materials. The males
    try to get there first so they can claim the best territory for themselves.
