The American robin (also known as red robin) is songbird and is part of the thrush family. It is widespread across the North America . It is the state bird for Michigan, Connecticut and Wisconsin.
This button refers to the National Audubon Society, which is tasked with conserving and restoring natural ecosystems. It was established in 1896 in Massachusetts. However, it only existed in individual states in its first few years. It wasn’t until 1901 did the other state-level societies combine into a loose national organization, that later cemented into a national society. Many laws have been passed and several acts ratified because of the work of the National Audubon Society. The Society’s primary goal is protecting birds, but it also works towards protecting the rest of nature. The National Audubon Society is still around today and continues its mission
