The song of this species is the most characteristic sign that spring is coming to a place. During the months of good weather, cheerful sounds flood the open fields where they usually live and their reddish or orange beaks become a spectacle of color. Such is the euphoria that surrounds it that their presence serves to dispel threats of cloudiness and rain.
However, with the arrival of the cold, Orpheus the robin becomes like squirrel hair and its song becomes torn. This is when the body undergoes a transformation: the beak loses luster and the wings close to the body, are covered in gray hair. Although it doesn´t actually hibernate, it can not raise flight for months and even changes its diet. It feeds on sweet wild fruits, such as blackberries, to seek other menus with lower intake of sugars, such as wheat seeds.
