I had to take this though my front glass window. Did some adjustment in levels. 3 Porch rails and 3 Robins.

Thands for viewing and have a nice day.

They look like Robins I have always seen in the USA. Maybe European Robins are not the same as in the USA. Ferny, can you post a picture for comparison.

Regarding this picture, 3x3 given, I think it would be better without the railings. To me, they are distracting.

Don't have too many robins here in paradise so I can't comment on the validity of the robins but I agree with Cal you've got the 3s.

The rails do distract from the robins a bit.

The males have the red belly.

Our Robins are about three times the size of that bird. The males have the red breast while the females are a mottled brown color. They appear in Spring and apparenty migrate in the fall.

Your Robin appears to be what I think we call a Chickadee. I'll do some research and let you know what I find.

(edit) There are, indeed, two different kinds of Robin, possibly more. The one we are familiar with in the US is the American Robin. It is much larger than its European counterpart. The Robin you showed is the European Robin. Both are beautiful birds.
