American Robin by Bonnie T.  Barry

I was beginning to think I wouldn’t see any robins this winter, but today they showed up in droves. A good sized flock did something they’ve never done in past years. They came to the patio to drink and bathe in the bird bath. Normally they keep their distance from the house, but something made them change their minds this year. Along with the robins was a large flock of cedar waxwings that joined the robins at the bird bath. It was a joy to see them, but since they are so wild and skittish, I didn’t dare go outside. I took this photo from inside the house looking through the glass French doors that lead to the patio. This robin had a leisurely drink and didn’t seem to be bothered by my peering at him through the glass doors.

    He may not be as small and cute as our European Robins, but he has instead the sleek lines of the aviator about him!!! Love the way he is holding his wings! I’d love to see what our two species or robins would think of each other if they met!!! Superb capture, as always, Bonnie – Queen of Birdies! ;o)

    Your robins are so different from ours. Yours look very grand and aloof, whereas ours are round and cuddly (sort of) lol !!!!! Beautiful shot Bonnie…..xxxx My Mike has put some beauties up lately but I’ve not been able to get out recently.

    Great capture, they normally don’t come near my feeders on my deck, just once or twice a year.
