The robin thought he had a couple of friends to hang out with

Cool idea

Is the USA the only location where the common Robins are about twice that big and have bright orange breasts?

The second shot shows the bird more clearly.

Poor bird has an identity crisis.
Pretty clever.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Sorry it wasn't better image quality. I kept it because I thought it was cute the way he alternated between the reflections. He also tried sitting on the mirror, but those shots were worse than these and I didn't keep them.

Cal I can't help you with northern hemisphere robins but our field guide lists 17 different Australian robins of varying colours and all about the same size as this one. They belong to several different families. This one is Petroica multicolor.

Cheers

Bernice
