I photographed this American Robin with its beak in a Gopher mound here in my yard. It was looking for Earthworms but I never saw it getting one. This looks to be a young American Robin.
The second photo shows that it did find something to eat but not in the Gopher mound.
How I Got The Photo – American Robin With Beak In Gopher Mound
I was sitting in my pickup photographing Eastern Bluebirds bringing food to their young. This Robin came by and I got this photo. This is my setup for photographing Eastern Bluebird at one of my nesting box: My Eastern Bluebird Photography Setup
I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
