As far as other Robins are concerned he probably does Jeff. You wouldn't think such an angelic looking little bird could be so aggressive,but the feathers don't half fly if one invades anothers territory.

Yes *Neil *, but he even has a point of view with the dog!!

Thanks for your visit Linrich. There's not as much I want to photograph at this time of year so wildlife comes more to the fore.

Cheers from Cheshire

What an absolutely lovely photograph Jeff

Strangely enough I have been trying to get a good shot of our local lads - the American Robin - in the sunshine and not really succeeding very well.

I shall try harder and post one for comparison (there is no comparison, ours is an ugly bird).

Get warm soon - David

Thanks buddy, I look forward to seeing the American Robin. I wonder if they are as macho, bolshie and forthright as the UK ones . . .

Cheers from Cheshire

Jeff I like to think of the British robin as _ precocious_ :o)

The American Robin is not related at all and only gets its name because of its red breast. But they seem to like worms just as much as the European variety. They work in small flocks, perhaps half a dozen and up and they skitter out of your way as you approach.

Their song is wonderful. A poignant reminder of the beauty of the wood thrush still to arrive from its wintering place.

Enjoy - David
