Robin Redbreast

11 comments


Every time I fill up the bird feeders, I have an audience, Robin Redbreast, I do not know it’s gender, there are two but I cannot tell them apart yet.

This one time he could not wait for me to finish the refilling and as I turned to get my camera he started helping himself.

Then he flew down under a shrub next to me and came up with his beak full of nest material, that is a sign that spring is round the corner.

Even if I am having a lousy day, my meet with Robin Redbreast fills my heart with joy.

Lovely photos Ld , we have an identical pair they know exactly what time I'm going out to feed them they hop straight onto the feeding station before I reach it , we're sure to have young robin families following in their foot steps in the spring ;o))

Wow he's got ideas hasn't he and no time to waste waiting around for you, surely its an impatient male, gotta fill ones belly before tackling the other major operations, I reckon he knows its nearly St Valentines and his lady is spurring him on, lol, they are wonderful photo's......

How lovely - and really good pictures - I have a robin that comes on the feeders - but it is the blackbird that sits and stares at the kitchen window to catch my eye when the sultana dish is empty - Jane

I have several robins come every day. They know exactly when to come, and even sit on my head and arm while I am filling

There's nothing like it, is there. Haven't yet had one sit on my arms or head, but they're happy to sit a couple of inches away while I'm filling feeders or working in the garden. It makes my day! :D

I was in the greenhouse the other day tidying or trying to, when I picked up a large pot which was on it's side and out peered a frog, I was just apologising to it, turned round and robin was just outside and then hopped over the entrance towards me, that was a magical moment.
