  1. The bird with the orange is beautiful. What kind of bird is that?

    Thanks

  2. Frank - I'm sure the birds know they're expected to be "counted" and disappear accordingly! Luck you with the Sparras though. :D

  3. Kallen - It is a Robin (Erithacus rubecula), one of the smallest thrushes & commonly known as "Robin Redbreast" for obvious reasons. Males & females practically identical.

    Tricia - You are so right. Hopefully the 'spadgers' will stick around again this year.

  4. Wow, I've never seen a Robin with that beautiful coloration. Our American Robin is dark with the coral breast. He's beautiful!

  6. Jayne & Richard. Glad you like Robin 'Redbreast'. I'll try to post some more pics idc.

    Jayne, Robins are one of the most friendliest garden visitors but have a dual personality. Can be very aggressive during breeding season!
