Window Watching - Robin

Birding through the window during a cold, dreary day wouldn't be the same without at least one sighting of a resident Robin (Erithacus rubecula).
Regardless of the weather conditions they always come looking for a handout.
This early morning songster is already expanding his daily repertoire as he stakes claim to his territory. FAB

  4. This is a very cheering series of photos! I especially like the 3rd where he appears to be singing his heart out.

  5. ...I would love to see this bird in person to see how he moves. His tiny little head and big fat belly are just adorable.

  6. What a dear little bird. He looks quite different than an American Robin.

  7. This is one of my favorite birds! I just saw an American Robin in my yard for the first time down in AZ today! I saw from Larry's blog that you participated in Big January. Congratulations on your count!

  8. Every garden should have a Robin Frank. Great little birds.

    I've got 2 at the moment, who seem to be tolerating each other rather well. I'm wondering if they are a pair.

  9. Hi Frank,
    Well it is nice you can do that for the window.. These are beautiful pictures and I'd like to see a robin in my garden Sir ;-) It is getting pretty cold over here too, we have nice light but it is really cold!

  10. Hi Carol. Regret to report that it's wet, wet, wet so stuck indoors catching up on a few chores.

    Hi Richard. Put it down to a cleaner window and a steadier grip!

    Hi Wilma. I think he was taking a breather.

    Hi Kelly. Fat belly? Nah..just puffed up! I'm sure the Redbreast will wait for you to visit sometime but in the meantime I'll keep him well fed.

    Hi Sunny. I guess he's a lot smaller.

    Hi Kathie. He's our favourite as well. Always nice to see a new yard visitor.

    Hi Kieth. Totally agree. I suspect you are right about them being a pair.

    Hi Chris. You never know, one of these may turn up around your house sometime. There was one in Iceland on 17 Jan 2010.

  11. I love Robins. They should be our national bird, with their good looks and territorial dominance.

  13. Hi Frank

  14. Lovely photos! We have an impatient Robin who sits singing outside the window waiting for us to feed him! I think the Robin must be Britain's favourite garden bird.

  15. Hi Frank......there is no doubt about it the robin is a charmer.
    I had one today taking tiny worms as I was digging. They are great companions.....and they don't answer back!!

    Beautiful photographs......

  18. JRandSue. Thanks.

    Monty. Definite survivors.

    Sharon. My mother has one who even taps on the window!

    Cheryl. Absolutely. I know where you're coming from! Lol.

    Shirleyanne. Thanks for the good wishes. If they are happy with your presence I'm sure you'll get a few shots soon.

    Mona. Definitely a litle smaller.

  19. Lovely shots of the Robin Frank. They are very accommodating. We at the present moment have three in our small back garden and they are often together.

  20. Hi Trevor. It won't be too long before the territorial battles begin!

  21. Terrific photos of a cheerful looking little bird.It looks like there's relation to an American Robin which is really a thrush.

  22. Larry. Yes, they are both Thrushes but AM Robin is twice the size of ours.
