    Ethan, where did you capture the shot of your Robin?  As a Brit now living in the US, the European Robin holds a special place in my heart, and always will.  Such character and vibrancy from this perfect creature.  Common in backyards back 'home', I miss them dearly.  Their characteristic bobbing, bold nature, spirit and beauty are something to behold up close and personal.  Their song will always be a personal favourite, beaten only by that of the European Blackbird (thrush family).  I remember fondly feeding mealworms to my daily visitors throughout nesting season, watched my 13-year-old daughter sit for over an hour until one of my garden regulars settled on her hand to take a live waxworms from her palm, spent many a late spring evening with French doors thrown wide open, and our little Robin friend would fly right into my kitchen, perch on the back of a dining chair and 'ask' for more mealworms when the feeder had been emptied! Fond memories. 20210516_152906

    Really enjoying learning about a whole new selection of songbirds, here in the US.  I am British and moved here from the UK in January 2022.  I am naturally inquisitive of comparison and look for like-for-like, chickadee to tit, [Eastern] bluebird to blackbird (Eurasian blackbird of the Thrush family). Blue Jay to Eurasian Jay etc.  I am also really enjoying the number of woodpeckers i have visiting my feeders, which were a very rare occurrence where i lived in the UK.  I am lucky to live in a very forested part of the US and my backyard is surrounded by wooded forest which attract an abundance of wildlife.  Apologies for the poor photograph - shot in fading light from the comfort of my armchair on my phone...on a whim!  But i love the little Downy! 20220330_185050[4900]
