Rockin' Robin!


I have been thrilled to see these wee robins - my favourite little birds in the UK - several times out on my walks last week.  The first robin was seen at the Quoile River walk, Downpatrick, and the two photos below were taken at Hillsborough Forest Park.

They are a naturally friendly, inquisitive little bird!


Thanks for all your comments!

Thanks to Eileen for hosting Saturday Critters HERE

Happy Saturday!

  3. Friendly as they seem to us they are extremely aggressive towards other Robins that dare to enter their territories. I heard several singing yesterday.

  11. I LOVE your robins! They are just precious.

    Ours are much bigger, and simply not as cute.

    And, I have not seen a robin here, yet. Which is interesting. Sometimes they are here and trying to peck away, in the snow. But they must have gotten the memo... "Not spring up north yet, this year!" ,-)

  16. That is the one bird I miss from growing up in Illinois. We don't see them here in Arizona. Such cute and as you say friendly birds.

  17. They are so CUTE! We have birds here that everyone calls robins, but they are really not. Yours is the real and true robin. Ours are much bigger, and very tame. They like mowed lawns for worms. So yours are tame and friendly just like ours?

  18. I love your wee Robins! Ours have starting returning from down in Florida. I think they are wondering why it is still so cool though!

  32. I do prefer the UK robin to the American Robin - much cuter. But I am happy to finally see American Robins again - a true harbinger of spring!

  33. UK Robins look so sweet...here in New Mexico, we have Plump, Pompous Robins who tend to bully all the others. Ahh, Spring. :)

  34. What a cutie. Your robins are so different from the ones here in the US. We had one in a tree last night out back that was having a "chriping" fest, noisy fellow but fun to see.
