Do robins nest twice a year?
Herein, do robins use the same nest twice?
A: Usually just once. If she was successful in raising young in a nest, she'll often build a new floor for that nest to raise another brood, but some robins just use the same nest a second time.
Likewise, do robins lay eggs more than once a year? Robins have two broods a year. Three successful broods a year is not uncommon, and in a good year even four are known. These multiple broods result in a long breeding season, and nestlings can be found until late July.
Simply so, how many times does a Robin lay eggs in one season?
A. Robins goes through the nest-building process each time they produce a new brood, so about two or three times a season.
How many nests does a robin build?
These birds may have built 20 or even 30 nests over their lifetimes! Robins don't need written instructions for building their summer homes. They follow the "nest-building blueprints" in their brains, and instinctively know how to build the perfect structure to hold the eggs they're about to lay.
