American Robin in February

While driving along Rothesay Ave this afternoon, near Renforth, I saw a bird fly across the highway in front of my car and it looked like it might have been an American Robin! We decided to turn around and see if we could relocate the bird to confirm our id for we have not often seen Robins at this time of year. After turning, but not having driven back as far as the location of our original sighting , we saw another red-breasted bird fly across the road. Was this the same bird or maybe there were two Robins? We had seen where the second bird had landed and so I got out of our car, crossed the highway, and captured a few pictures; thus confirming our sighting of an American Robin in February.
