The Robin

As winter seems to have well and truly arrived now, I thought I would take the opportunity to showcase the Robin.
Quite often seen as the classic Christmas card bird, but seen in most gardens all year round. There is something very appealing about seeing a Robin on a cold sunny day, or even better, in the snow. I took these shots on a very sunny, cold and frosty morning, which seemed to enhance the orange breast feathers. They are quite territorial and seem to spend a lot time and energy seeing off other birds from their patch, but probably most people’s favourite (or at least most recognisable) garden bird.

  6. Beautiful photos! Love the one with the snow. I didn't know your robin is a year-round visitor. Our larger version is always said the bring spring here in the US.

  8. Yes, a different sort of robin from the ones I remember in Quebec and see here in Vancouver. Love the eyes.. feel as though we are staring right into them at times. Beautiful frost on the fence.

  9. This seems to be a much smaller type of Robin then what we have here. Such a cutie though and I'm just loving the detail like the ice crystals on the fence and the moss. Great shots.

  10. When I first came to the US I was surprised how different the robins here are from those back home. I came to love both of them. Great shots of this cutie.
