Ben Franklin wanted the turkey as our national bird. The majestic bald eagle was chosen instead. But I think robins are the most American of all. They bring hope to those stuck in miserable winters of despair.
It's strangebut there's a move afoot in England to have the Robin as our national bird. Don't know about the American Robin but ours is an aggressive loner who can be seen fighting every other Robin that comes into its territory. Well apart from when it wants to mate and have little Robins of course.
