Hi RKMoore and a warm welcome to you from me too.

I've moved your post to the ID forum.... I'm sure someone will be along soon to help you.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.

EDIT: It looks like KC and I have had the same idea!

Certainly some of them look like American Robins but I don't know if they all are.

Thanks!!
A coworker said they were "Robin's Redbreast" and I had no idea whether she was correct or not.
The name "robin" or "Robin redbreast" or similar is applied by English speakers to lots of different unrelated birds all around the world. Many (most?) have red or orange breasts and so recall the European robin (see e.g. https://ebird.org/species/eurrob1/US ) which is the original bird. European robins are a type of flycatcher whereas American robins are thrushes.

There are other colours involved. In Australia you have yellow "robins" while male Indian "robins" are mostly dark metallic blue. None of these are closely related.
