That's a lovely shot Scott - and yes they do have numerous similarities.

I'm often surprised though that the common names for some birds bear little relationship to their most prominent features !

Just to confuse me further I thought this little chappie was a version of the (European) Robin when I first started birding here (they are about the same size i.e. much smaller than your Robins) :-

Taken with K5 & Tamron BB 500 mirror. It's a Red-flanked Bluetail

Notice the blue tail !
