Is this a robin?

Sure has the posture and looks of one but the color is really weird ...

It's a thrush of some kind... Robins are thrushes, too (same family, Turdidae)

Thanks Swampy... It was too far away to see with the naked eye so I zoomed in with my camera for a view (Hence the blurry shot)
I sometimes use it as a binoculars while out... Would a brown thrasher fall in that same family?

It is hard for me to get a positive ID, but it does look like a brown thrasher, Havalotta! You can help with the ID by observing the behavior of a bird. Thrashers spend a lot of time in the leaf litter under trees and shrubs, scratching and 'thrashing' around looking for worms and other insects.

It could also be a thrush of some sort, as Swamp Thing has said, but cannot give you a positive answer.

That was my best guess after an odd color robin was booted.
Well anyway I did enjoy watching it gather all those insects....

Here's a robin from a rest area on the far side of the soccer fields. She wasn't happy with me taking her photo so I clicked and left.

I have had baby robins in my front yard all week. They're adorable. They start squawking for food at about 4:30 AM.

Shut the he** up, babies!
