A robin in North America, goes through the nest-building process two or three times a year. They are expert builders!
The robin’s nest is an open cup of grass and twigs held together with a thick layer of mud and lined with fine dry grass. Females build the nest from the inside, pressing dead grass and twigs around them into a cup shape using the wrist of one wing.
The nest is usually placed in the crotch of a tree or shrub 5-20 feet above ground. The site for the nest should be protected from sun, wind and rain. It can be anywhere from ground to treetop in height; the site must be on something sturdy enough to anchor the nest securely in place. Your nest should also be very close to a good feeding spot so you can easily find worms while keeping an eye on it, and it shouldn't be too far from water. Choose a spot that is hard for predators to see.
The female lays 3-7 light blue eggs that are incubated for 12-14 days and the young leave the nest in about 14-16 days.
