Robin White Breast

you can't pick up a tabloid today without seeing a picture of a white breasted Robin.

I wonder how he does in the territory front since I believe it's the colour that creates the conflicts.

Pete, I enjoy seeing Robins that are so unfamiliar! Your Robins look much smaller but much more CUTE. Even the white-breasted one!

As Mary says, your robins are much smaller and cuter than ours. Very interesting, the white breasted one.

I did read the article, but wondered what an 'amature birdwatcher' is!!

hi ya. well your Robin is a member of the trhush family. So akin to our Blackbirds and Song Thrushes.

Our Robins are very confiding of man in the uk and very showy (but quite shy on mainland Europe go figure). They are one of the few birds who sing all year.
