European Robin ~ Erithacus rubecula

A Robin on a Wood pile

by Susan F. M. T.

This Robin ~ Erithacus rubecula flew up to me on the river bank & settled on a pile of dead wood posing just 8 feet /2 metres away from me & started to perform while I clicked away with the camera...This was one of the best pictures. Other names~ Redbreast, Ploughman's Bird, Ruddock & in Irish Spideog Probably the most familiar garden bird - the bright orange-red breast and facial area make it unmistakable. Upperparts a uniform greyish brown, belly and lower breast greyish white. The bill is dark and pointed and the legs black. Can appear very plump and rounded, especially in cold weather when the bird fluffs out its feathers. Can be very confiding, often perching motionless close to gardening activity. Occasionally cocks tail briefly. Susan
