♪♫♪   Bird song amid the blossom  ♫♩♪

All day in my back garden, the resident robin entertains with his tuneful songs.

Not easy to spot him, now that his colours merge with the new leaves and blossom !

Aaaaw lovely picture not surprised he's singing surrounded by all that lovely blossom :-).
I've had a pair following me round this morning, although they weren't to happy when I went near the laurel hedge so assume that's where they're building their nest, it'll have to be a no go area for a while I think :-)

Hi Kathy ...
Thanks, and well done on working out that the laurel will need a wide berth for a while ! Let's hope the robins breed successfully :o)

that's a lovely pic, and you got him in mid-trill, too. not seen any robins round here yet, but there's loads of "free trees" and shrubs for them to find homes in.

28 Mar, 2014

 

Thanks Pam ...
I'm lucky the robin poses very prettily for me ...

Thank you Fran ...
Glad you like the mid-trill photo ...
I hope your free trees are soon full of pretty song birds.
