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!

  7. 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 ...

  14. 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.

  27. 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.

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

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

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

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

  41. 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:)
