Robin

 
 
 I took these pics on Saturday morning. We had a beautiful mild weekend, with temps near 50F. Today we are having a mini blizzard! It's not nice to fool us Mother Nature!

Such a beautiful bird. I hope your weather comes to its senses soon.

I don't think I've EVER seen a robin up that close!! Hope the cold snap clears soon and heads downunder where it'll be most welcome after a neverending hot summer ...

Wonderful pictures - I love the detail in feathers around the "shoulders" - such a nice looking bird.

Cheers and thanks for the (regularly early) link to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne

You have some green grass already! We who still have brown lawns notice things like that. :) Very nice shots of the robin, Karen.

So true...Spring, sorta. Glad you got some pretty pics of the bird

We had a warm weekend in Massachusetts, too. Much better than dealing with Nor'easters.

I've had quite a few Robins migrating through the yard.

Blizzard in April? Poor robin! Poor you~! It can't last long this month though can it? I miss seeing spring robins.

Christian Weiß said...

Nice bird our here some birds went back to the South.

We had robins here in south Florida, but only for a few days. Some winters we see none at all. Nice detail in your photos!

Beautiful bird.

Beautiful shots in every angle!

Just beautiful shots there Karen. Some people tell me our European Robin is a nicer looking bird than American Robin but seeing your pictures I have my doubts.

Poetic Soul said...

Very nice bird

Richard Pegler said...

Wow Karen! Great images of your American Robin, which is so different to our Robin over the other side of the pond.

Dianne said...

the weather roller coaster is amazing this year

incredible close-ups of that sweet bird

Beyond the Dog Dish said...

When we start seeing the Robin build new nests around here we know Spring has begun! It was welcomed and late this year though!

Excellent shots! The robins are showing up here now, too. They've been hunting worms in the yard for a couple of weeks.

Les Fous du Cap said...

Magnificent photos, this bird is really an attractive model ;-)

Debbie said...

i "thin" looking one....perhaps you need to fill those feeders??

Cynthia M. said...

Beautiful pictures, Karen! Despite how common robins are, they really are striking birds when you take the time to look at them closely.

Wally Jones said...

Robins always to appear to have an "attitude" in photos!
Nice series.
They've been fattening up here in Florida for their northward return.

Rebecca said...

Looks as if it were posing for you! Great photos :)

Karen, a perfect bird and beautiful shot for MoM. I love the way his beak exactly matches his breast - and the contrast of textures and colour of the grass.
Thank you for sharing him on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

Rambling Woods said...
