Perched





Robins are plentiful at our place, as they are everywhere else, I'm sure.  They have built a nest on the support underneath our deck and with a flashlight I can see pretty little blue eggs through the crack between planks.  They are always perched close by, and it is easy to get some fairly close shots.  So . . . I have a ton of photos of Robins.  And I can't tell a male from a female.

I think this one has an injured foot.

Really nice captures Amy. It does look like this robin has a crippled foot. We had a chickadee here once with it's foot like that. I think the male robin has a redder breast but you can't really tell unless it's standing beside a female. Have a great day.

Super photos of a bird we all love. Hope you'll be witness to the 'flying lessons' of the little ones ... I always enjoy seeing those.

What a sweet little Robin and your shots of it perched on the white fence are just lovely.

Very nice pictures of the Robin! We seem to have an abundance of them here this year. My husband took a photo in the field at his work place recently and said there had to be at least 100 Robins! Never have seen such a thing before.

Thanks for your visit and comment on my fences.

Wonderful captures of the robin!

He's quite a handsome robin, especially perched on that beautiful white fence. Yes, we have tons of them. Robins, sparrows, grackles, and starlings. I can't seem to get other varieties to show up at the feeders.

Robins are plentiful around here too. And you are right, can't tell a male from a female. Wonderful captures of her/him. Bet you are having fun watching those eggs!!
