Winter Robin

The robins stick around most of our winter, unless exceptionally cold weather drive them south.

This fat little fellow was most accommodating. I was able to catch this shot through a dirty window and even holding a baby in my left arm.

Thank you, Mr. Robin!

Almost a year ago, I saw a large flock of robins feasting on berries. It's one of those magnificent natural observations that will always stay with me. The photo I took didn't match the amazing reality -- although I did like it:

Flocking and feasting on fruit, according to the Audubon Society, is pretty typical winter behavior in our area.


Oh, this USA robin is so different from the English robin but they still seem to have the same upright confidence!

Yes so different from our robins & a more orange brown chest than ours. A lovely bird.

He looks all puffed up, probably trying to stay warm

Doesn't he look proud? As he should - very handsome! I also like your robins feasting image - so lovely!

A nice capture of this robin. They tend to flit around a lot and I find them difficult to photograph.

Nice capture - and yes, so different from the UK Robins.

You seem too good at multi-tasking, doing so many things at the same time. And you managed a wonderful capture of the robin.

Fantastic!

He’s fabulous - I think probably more related to our redwing or fieldfares than our robins. I saw a flock of waxwing on a tree across the road from our house a few years ago and that would be fantastic to see again (though highly unlikely so close to home because the tree had to be removed!)
