passerines

Today I photographed some tiny passerine birds: A male Whinchat, a male Great Tit and a female European Robin

The Whinchat (Saxicola rubetra) is a small migratory passerine bird

The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), most commonly known in Anglophone Europe simply as the Robin, is a small insectivorous passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family (Turdidae), but is now considered to be a chat.

    • I think so too! I’m sometimes amazed when I look up the names in English.. They’re not nearly as interesting in my mother tongue.

  20. You so captured the spirit of that first bird! Love it!

  21. Such cuties, Camilla ! The robins are no softies,though; they stand their ground when it comes to defending their territory, even when the other bird is double their size. But they’re adorable. Like the photo’s of these birds in their natural environment.

    • Thanks so much, Patricia! Yes, the little Robins are tough, but so cute to look at!
