Looks like a wonderful singer! 😀

Yes, he was singing a fluting, warbling song! 🙂

I had no idea a European robin looked so different from the American robin. I would never have guessed they are so closely related.

They are actually NOT closely related. The American was named after the European because of its colour, but they don’t belong to the same family; the American is a Thrush and the European a Flycatcher.

Ahhh.. that makes sense. A good example of why common names are not always helpful.

Calee, you even got a lovely shot of him smiling! 🙂

Beautiful shot of “your” Robin. As you pointed out, the colors are somewhat similar to the American Robin, but the shape is really different.

Thanks Mike! It’s a bit confusing they have the same name, both are beautiful but quite different from each other. 🙂

Wonderful shot! Always delighted to see robin images!

Thank you, Anne! 🙂

Yes, it’s a pretty little bird! 🙂
