Report WAVES of Robins
(Peak Migration)


Wayne Kruyduba

We define a "WAVE" as three or more robins.

 

1. What is a wave?
2. Report your observations

In southern areas, where robins over-winter, robins are commonly seen in large flocks. We expect to receive reports of "WAVES" of robins from these areas during the winter months, before the spring migration begins.

In northern areas, the first robins of spring are usually seen alone. Later, groups or waves of robins follow and are a sign that the migration is peaking in that area.

 

Whether you're in the north or south, please report all sightings of flocks or groups of robins as "WAVES." We will use the data to make a map showing robin abundance—on the wintering grounds and along the migration trail.

When you see WAVES of robin, let us know!
