Terra your robins are getting famous! I think we all enjoy them.

Lol Waddy - have you seen a robin fight? Talk about aggressive

Thanks Wildrose, Waddy, Gnarly, Bloomer, Sandra and Stera ...
certainly as the weather improves, the robins and other birds are becoming very active.

what we in the USA call a robin is a lot different then the picture you have?

It was homesick emigrants from GB looking for something familiar from home that used the name for the American bird Vjd. Our robins have a wonderful winter song in addition to their friendly cheeky character. Do yours sing? It is Britain's most popular bird and figures on a lot of christmas cards.

our robin is much larger, has a red breast and is not much of a singer, has blue eggs, they have not come back yet, but pretty soon i think.

Hi Terra

My robins have nested in the top of one of my tree ferns , in the Autumn I bend the fronds over to protect the crowns , when I was tidying up the garden two weeks ago found the nest and have left well alone including the old brown fronds covering the crown, they are sitting on eggs now and the box has been occupied as well, plus a blackbird nest in the ivy ....

Great photo terra, he looks like he is posing for you there! Was it difficult to get the photo?
Love love love robins...... they are so beautiful! I never knew they were aggressive though.....!
I have 2 that I feed in my garden regularly...... I swear they are calling me to come out and feed them as they sit on my fence..... or maybe it's just me wishful thinking! He he ?
