According to Journeynorth.org, Robins typically start moving northward from Florida and the Gulf states ahead of warm fronts, arriving just before or along with rainy weather. This means they arrive right when earthworms must emerge from their tunnels or drown.

Here’s a list of the arrival dates of robins in our yard for the last 12 years based upon personal observations:

2020 – Jan. 2
