Robins contrary to popular opinion, do not migrate. They go into something called torpor & emerge on warmer winter days. Robin’s also eat juniper berries too.

Your statement surprised me, so I did some googling on this topic. I found many articles that said most robins migrate, but some do not. I did not find any articles that said robins do not migrate.  If you have a source, please post.


The map in this article shows in purple — the robins are permanent residents. https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/american_robins_harbinger_of_spring_or_year-round_resident

 

And this article says they do migrate — but based on availability of food sources. https://feederwatch.org/learn/feeding-birds-faqs/theres-a-flock-of-american-robins-in-my-yard-dont-t...

 

In our area, there must be a lot of food sources — holly & junipers providing berries. Even certain viburnums too.
