Wild Bird Wednesday



Just A Robin ...
My friend and I, when we walk, catch ourselves saying,"it's just a Robin," when ever we see a bird and are excitedly looking to see what it is.  Just a Robin because we have Robins everywhere.  They seem to be surviving successfully in spite of all of the weather issues.  And now, at this time of year we have Robin fledglings and so there are more Robins.  This is a wonderful thing and we laugh when we say "Just  a Robin" because we both know they are wonderful, sometimes even even comical birds and there will never be too many of them for our liking.  So enjoy ...

Different pair, same story ...

The well fed fledging ...

This story is repeating itself all around us ... The blessings of Nature and the lessons of parenthood.

  3. When I spotted my first robin I was so excited. Then I started seeing them everywhere (spring time) and said the same as you! I've never seen one, however, with all those spots on the breast. Must be a juvenile? Anyway, lovely photos! Stopping by from WBW.

  7. Don't you just love the way their beak just about unhinges when they feed? Beautifully captured.

    Thanks for your kind comment. You have six wrens in N.America. Maybe not as colourful as ours, but just as sweet. Have a peek here http://www.birds-of-north-america.net/wrens.html

  11. Good to see the young ones.

    Many years ago, when I was a kid, I used to see so many Tree Sparrows; just Sparrows. Sadly, now, they are in sharp decline here.

  13. Hi there - I don’t think a bird that looks like that is ever going to be "just" a robin.

    Thanks for being involved with the new WBW.

  14. I will never get used to how funny it is to see a big feed one its own size! I know, it is that parental thing. Others do it, too...like humans!

  15. Great shots! We don't have any Robins down here, but I loved seeing them when I would visit up north. They are common, but fun to watch.
