  1. Oh, so that’s what English robins look like! I’ve heard for years that what we call robins over here west of the pond are really a species of thrush. I can see why English settlers would have named our birds “robins” – they do have bright red breasts, at least the males do (the females are an inconspicuous dull green) – but our version is much darker and more slender and elongated.

    Very nice pictures, Gilly!

  2. Our pesky squirrel keeps knocking down these little bird feeders. Do you have any problems? Love our Northmoor robins. Our’s is so fast to pick up bugs when I’m gardening. Our Vancouver robins are actually a type of thrush. Lovely but not so cute or cheeky. πŸ™‚

  3. so sweet. there is something refreshingly lighthearted about birds.
