The American Robin are around my area all year-long. I photographed this one at the Fort Smith National Historic Site here in Arkansas.
I have seen large flocks of these birds the past few weeks while hiking the Ouachita National Forest.
How I Got The Shot – American Robin In January
When I come back from photographing at Robert S. Kerr Reservoir or the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, I will stop by the Fort Smith National Historic site. This place has a nice trail with lots of birds.
I came upon this American Robin while walking the trail. I was hand holding a Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with a Canon EF100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens.
