What a lovely picture! Glad to see your blue sky....we have been rather grey lately. September didn't bring it's usual late summer warmth....perhaps the sun will appear in October :)

Terratoonie ...dusky my rabbit has a little robin friend that comes sees him (dusky) every-morning and mid afternoon... at nesting time the robin would now and again take a beak full of dusky's hay :)... he sits on a perch sings.. gets his seeds from neighbours garden then comes to see dusky...dusky will go to him and sit watching him ... now and again beak and rabbits nose almost touch...how cute is that?

Thanks Jane, Neena and Klahanie ..
Yes, it is fun that others can read the Dusky rabbit story :o)

Raining here today, but I'm sure the robin is cosy and
dry somewhere, ready to sing more songs when the sun shines again. :o)

Terrific photo Terra. Love it when a robin comes down and "helps" with the gardening :)

Great rabbit story Jane!

Thank you Homebird and Sheila ..
Yes, the robins are very bold when they 'help', aren't they :o)

This is beautiful Terratoonie, I have added it to my favourites so that I can look at it over and over! You even caught him with his beak open at full throttle!!
Everyone is saying he sounds so cheerful, but I think he can sound quite melancholy at this time of year - as if he is sad to see the end of summer & thinking - "I have a long cold winter to get through now!" (or maybe that is what I am thinking for myself!!!) :)

Hi Shirl ...
thanks for adding the robin to your favourites ... very kind. :o)
I agree that is it us who are thinking of the long, cold winter ahead ... fuel bills :o(((
When I took the photo, the robin's voice was very cheerful ... seemed to be looking forward happily to the colder weather .. :o)))

A little Robin and Sparrows used to visit my bird feeder and water stool at my old house where the garden was more of a wildlife one. I miss those sightings.

Hi GM rainbow .. Thank you for visiting ..
I have about 50 sparrows around my garden ..
they are fun to see :o)

We often see Robins when my wife are walking in the early morning to her place of work!

I often see them on the allotment as well. Together with Blackbirds & an occasional Thrush Robins are very often seen close by. They have such incredible eyesight as well! Even if I get down to almost lay my cheek on the recently dug soil I still can't see the little worms they somehow see! They fill their beaks to overflowing & keep dropping them before giving up trying to squeeze just one more into an overfull beak already & flying off to its nest!

You were ever so lucky to get such a good shot, TT!

Thanks Balcony ..
Yes, robins are a joy to have around.
This afternoon I was standing at the far end of my garden, with my face just below the top of the fence.

The robin suddenly flew towards me and landed on the fence in front of me... so we were face to
face ...
he was perched looking at me, about 4 inches from my nose .. and he didn't seem bothered at all .. just a cheeky look at me !

6 Oct, 2013

 

That must have been a fantastic experience, TT!
