The first image of our robin coloring pages features a majestic robin sitting on a branch. Legend has it that the robin is a sacred bird that offers protection and spiritual enlightenment.
The robin’s spiritual meaning often leads us to growth, renewal, passion, change, and power.
The robin is also about perseverance and trying to “keep on keeping on”. If you spot one, listen to your inner voice as it can teach you how to focus and trust yourself better.
Did you know that robins are very popular in North America, as well as in Europe? In fact, this lovely creature is the national bird of Great Britain.
When it comes to Britain’s favorite bird, the robin, the folklore, the myths surrounding it are as colourful as its breast.
Since the dawn of time, this tiny bird has been the symbol of good fortune, happiness, rebirth – and sometimes even as a messenger for lost, loved ones.
Rumour has it that robins have a sweet tooth! Fruits, berries, sweet cakes, and even pastry dough are their favorites. However, these tiny birds also feed on insects (especially beetles) and worms.
You might notice one following you up as you work in your garden, hoping to nap a few worms as you unearth them.
They also snack seeds, crushed peanuts, raisins, and sunflower hearts. As your child has fun filling in this beautiful robin coloring page, you can tell them more fun facts about robins!
Think of all the beautiful colors we could use when filling in this robin coloring page! Here, we have a robin that sits perched up on a branch. Perhaps it’s welcoming the first rays of morning sun?
In the background, we also have some beautiful flowers, which means that this image depicts spring, when trees are blossoming and nature comes back to life.
Let’s capture the happiness of springtime by using pastel shades like yellow and pink for the flowers!
By the looks of it, this robin coloring page shows a singing robin, and we can all agree that it’s a truly lovely song. While both females and males sing, the male happens to have a distinct tune.
He is often the last bird heard as the sun sets and often for two reasons: defending a territory and attracting a mate. Therefore, spring song is far more beautiful and powerful in males.
Have a look at this cute robin hopping from branch to branch! But why do robins hop? If you go birdwatching, you will notice the robin prefers to hop around more than other birds do.
That’s because robins are naturally forced to hop when the grass is too high for them to see over or sometimes because they just want to.
Birds as small as robins move farther in a single hop than they do by taking several steps.
Did you know that both male and female American robins look similar?
Although males are generally brighter and more boldly colored than females, there aren’t too many distinctions, so you can color this robin printable in any way you want!
Did you know that American robins have exceptionally keen eyesight that allows them to see the tiny disturbances in the soil that indicate where underground worms are moving?
As you can see in this robin coloring sheet, robins have dazzling feather attire.
Males have rust-colored feathers on their chest, a black head, a yellow bill, and white outlines that make their eyes loom. They also have grey backs and wings.
On the other hand, females look similar to males, but their colors are much duller and sometimes blend together, making identification difficult.
What colors will you choose for this robin coloring page?
In this robin printable we have a cute-looking robin that sits joyfully on a tree branch? Is he getting ready to fly away?
Well, no matter the story behind this image, we’re sure your child will have a great time picking the colors for this robin and coloring it in vibrant shades.
We also have plenty of creative freedom for the background, which we can color blue, for the sky, or green, for a tree.
Here’s a nice little fun fact to finish our list of robin coloring sheets: robins enjoy our presence. Being a woodland edge species, the robins have always lived near humans.
These little guys have an inbuilt curiosity, presumably something that enables them to seek novel feeding opportunities.
