American Robin is one of the most abundant species of birds in North America, out-numbered by only the red-winged blackbird. When not feasting on a beetles or grubs, flocks of this migratory songbird can be found in bushes and trees enjoying a banquet of fresh fruits and berries.

Yount’s work is in a realistic style to depict wildlife and their habitats.
