Robin

winter-robin

At a time of year when most bird song is subdued we can rely on the familiar robin for a winter serenade. Males defend their territories in this way year round, making them one of our most noticeable and best loved garden visitors in the winter months.

      There are a few that visit the garden, but we have one very aggressive wagtail who chases all other birds away! Except for the starlings…

    Your robins are so cute πŸ™‚
    For us, it’s the bright red cardinals that stand out in the bare shrubs. They drive poor Theo crazy πŸ˜‰

    Much more colorful than Robins here! Beautiful capture of this fellow in the sunlight, Jude. Happy New Year!

      Thanks Jane. He was beautifully lit up by the dying sun on this day – I had to creep up on him to avoid the branches and fortunately he didn’t move.
