Sometimes they build a new nest on top of their old one.
I've seen as many as three on top of one another. It's a good idea to remove old nest in baskets and off of downspouts and rafters in fall so that parasites don't overwinter. Visitors to this site have submitted photos and stories of some unusual nesting places that this bird chooses to raise their young.
Removing the nest protects future broods should they return to the same site because parasites may travel from the old nest to the new nest. Sometimes a single female will build several nest close to one another. She will eventually select one to raise her young in. No one knows why they do this from time to time. It's not uncommon to find Doves reusing a Robins nest to lay their eggs and raise young. Because they forage largely on lawns, they are vulnerable to pesticide poisoning and can be an important indicator of chemical pollution.
Habitat This is a bird of woodland edges and opening. Prefering open ground on which it can forage for insects to eat and feed their young.
Try placing fruit on tray feeders or planting fruiting shrubs to attract more of them to your backyard garden. After the breeding season, Robins flock together and go to large communal roosts at night. This habit continues from fall through winter.
A good percentage of baby birds are lost due to people thinking they've rescued the little one. The young are often found on the ground without what seems to be, any parental oversight. Adults and children catch these newly fledged birds and take them inside, not knowing they've rescued a bird that didn't need rescuing.
You see, when baby robins first leave the nest, they are unable to fly. Some jump to higher branches in the nest tree and some take a tumble to the ground but landing softly. These baby birds are fine, the adults will continue to care for them. Leave Them Be!
If you're worried they may be in harms way, help them to a nearby shurb for protection and so that the adults will find and continue feeding them. The adult birds can see you a block away. So don't think because you don't see any adult birds that there are none around. Adults are listening for their young and will find them if you keep them close to where you found them. Please share this information with others who may think they're helping these young birds. Keep your cats indoors during the nesting season and that will help a lot also.
