You know it's spring when you see the first robin standing in your newly green lawn looking for a worm. Taken last spring.

Now how did I know there was going to be a Robin in this shot. Very nice.

AlanT can probably confirm that this is not the Robin that is familiar in the UK. There is a different breed of robin that is common over there.

Something I always enjoy watching, the robins bobbing for worms.

Yes, ours are small, brown & plump, with a bright red breast. I've a feeling I've got a photo of one somewhere, but I can't find it. I may be reduced to photographing one of last year's Christmas cards, but I suppose that'd be cheating nearly as much as photographing the bird book.

My ornithologicalskills are similar to my bread-buying - I can tell the difference between a small brown and a large white.

I've been hunting the robins in our gardenever since.This morning's rather poor hand-help 432mm equiv 1/64s400x300 1:1 clip from a 3072x2034 frame on a very dull day from an upstairs window is the best I've managed so far. As you see, the breast colour is similar, but ours are smaller and very fat, and therefore have better careers posing for Christmas cards. They don't pose for long because of cats.
