Back to this week's update.

Ground Travel Two Ways
Close your eyes and picture a robin moving through the grass. Does it hop? Does it walk?

Answer: Both! Robins are one of the few birds that can move on the ground both by hopping and walking. Here you see one leg pushing from the back. How would the legs look different if this robin was hopping? What other surprising things can you learn about robins on Journey North's FAQ pages?
