From All About Birds
An American Robin can produce three successful broods in one year. On average, though, only 40 percent of nests successfully produce young. Only 25 percent of those fledged young survive to November. From that point on, about half of the robins alive in any year will make it to the next. Despite the fact that a lucky robin can live to be 14 years old, the entire population turns over on average every six years.

Thank you all so much for the kind comments and get well wishes. I’m feeling much better and ready to come back to Bailey Road.
I’ve just been home a couple of days from a five-day stay in the hospital. Still feeling kind of weak and tired, but I plan to try to catch up on all the posts I’ve missed. I hope to be posting and commenting again soon.
