Me and my shadow.

Continuing the seasonal theme. While working indoors today, I spied our resident Robin 'Redbreast' waiting for a vacant perch on one the feeders and casting a reflection on the wall so I took a few quick snaps through the window just for fun.

Still a few tasks to complete before Christmas, but in the meantime many, many thanks for all the seasonal messages from my blogger friends.  FAB


  1. What a sweetie! I love this little bird!

  2. Well spotted Frank. The low elevation of the Sun gives all sorts of opportunities, though often short lived.

  3. Lovely photos - the robin redbreast is a handsome bird - sweeter than the Am Robin - closer in shape to our Eastern bluebird - you'll never have too many pics of this one. Happy holidays!

  4. Beautiful little bird. Great photos through the glass.

    Merry Christmas,

  5. Frank, nice use of the shadow! Still can't get over how different your Robins are from ours over here. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  6. Neat, Neat, Neat!
    I just went and washed windows overlooking my feeders, just in case the chance comes for a photo like this! It will probably be the blue jays who will show up for peanuts.

  7. Wonderful images,love these shots.
    Hope you have a great Christmas and a Happy Birding New Year,look forward to seeing more of your great blog in 2010.
    Cya Frank.

  8. Nice one Frank :D

    Merry Christmas to you and Anita and your families - (not too much Christmas cake now.... )

  9. I just love your robin, much prettier than the US robin...Merry Christmas!

  10. A very patient Robin Frank.

    Have a great Christmas. It'll soon be here.

  11. Wonderful! They sure are pretty.

    And a Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  12. Wishing you and your family a fantastic Christmas and New Year Frank. May 2010 be a good one.

  13. Great images Frank.
    Its a bit early for seeing double just yet though.
    Hope you and all the family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year

  14. Hi "Early Birders".

    Robin 'Redbreast' and 'his shadow' thank you for all your kind comments.

    Enjoy the festivities. FAB.

  15. Your robins are much different than ours. Beautiful pictures. Have a very Merry Christmas and may many birds visit you in the new year.

  16. Hi there Frank, wow… what lovely captures. I’m surprised it stayed still long enough to cast a shadow ;-)

    Just wanted to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2010 to you and yours :-D

  17. Hi Bill S. Glad to hear you are now mobile after your op.
    Season Greetings warmly reciprocated. Fab

  18. Hi shirl. Yeh, there were plenty of Spadgers on the feeder so he had to wait, bless him.
    Have a great Christmas. FAB

  19. Thanks Eve. Our Robins always like to have their photo taken.
    Happy New Year. FAB.
