Baby Robin 2

What a difference a week makes ! There isn’t too much difference in size ( I’ve zoomed in this week to show his new red feathers which are much more prominent now ! ) He still has his juvenile feathers covering his head and neck but he’s definitely developing the robin temperament, last week he was very wary of all other birds this week he decided there was no way he was sharing his mealworms with a sparrow and promptly shooed him away 😂

Oh how very cute 🥰 He’s very handsome! I love all the birds…except 2 big pigeons that intimidate all the other little ones in our garden!

Yes I have wood pigeons who are very cheeky but they won’t disturb the other birds if I’m about , they sit on the fence and watch me from the corner of their eye pretending they’re not interested in the food I’ve just put out then I put some on their table and they’re like gannets !!😂

Just had to share another photo ! Whenever I go in the garden my little robin appears beside me within minutes and follows me around . Tonight having avoided the heat of the day I went out to do a bit of gardening and whilst I trimmed some shrubs beside him Robin took his evening bath , he’s so sweet 😭

He is Alberta , but I worry about him like he’s my child 😂 xx

I'm not surprised-little birds are so vulnerable. I think he stands a better chance than most of living to breed and live to a ripe old age. xxx

With their scrawny legs it makes you wonder how they survive the cold winters

I’ve often thought that myself 🤔

Love robins. The American robins are not so dainty 🐞

Thepainterswife profile image
Thepainterswife in reply to Nicholatracy

I didn’t know that 😃 in fact I didn’t even know there were robins in America .

Nicholatracy profile image
Nicholatracy in reply to Thepainterswife

They are about the size of a thrush without a proper red breast. 🐞🐞

Thepainterswife profile image
Thepainterswife in reply to Nicholatracy

I just googled them , they’re beautiful birds 😍 apparently named robins because of the colour of the breast feathers but a different family to the British robin all together . You learn something every day 😃

Lovely photos, Val, thank you for sharing. Robins are bossy little birds and always stand up for themselves. I think you have a friend for life xxx

Awww how wonderful to watch little miracle of nature in your garden. Used to have robin family years ago..Last 3 years it’s been Great Tit family nested in same box last 3 years .. they start getting their nest ready in January/ February.. so interesting!!.. watching each step like how they work as a pair in and out nest feeding , then when young fledge.

Soooo you must give your little one a name ???

Thepainterswife profile image
Thepainterswife in reply to Maggie_Mae

I’ve had boxes up for years but nothings ever used them 🙁 but I think it’s because I have a very high , thick , mature hedge on three sides of the garden and open country with plenty trees on the fourth , they’ve probably got better places to hide in 🤔 I’ve thought of naming him but I’m worried that would make me feel even closer to him , every day I go into the garden and feel such relief when he appears and then we have a little chat ( the neighbours must think I’m crackers ) 😂. If I was going to name him I’m thinking maybe Titch but I’m open to suggestions ?

Maggie_Mae in reply to Thepainterswife

Right I’m officially opening the Baby Robins suggestion box !!! Apart from the obvious Robbie .. hmmm how about naming him along the lines of your new grandchild??

Thepainterswife in reply to Maggie_Mae

I’m hopeless with names but I’ve always liked Oliver so if I combine that with my dogs names I think I’ve got a great children’s book title “ In the Garden with Boris , Belle and Oliver Robin “ 😂
