More Robins

DSC_1081 - 2013-02-11 at 09-52-33

American Robins have arrived here in my neighborhood.  I had seen just a few the other day and posted about those birds here yesterday.  As it turned out, many more birds joined the advanced scouts soon afterward.  I also spoke too soon when yesterday I described their calls as having characteristics vaguely similar to that of a Blackbird’s call.  I’ll “Eat crow” on that one.  Ha!  Guess what birds were among the flock of American Robins?  Yes, several Red-winged Blackbirds.  So, moral of the story is:  If it sounds a little like a certain bird, well, just maybe it is that other bird (mockingbird calls excepted).  I saw about fifty to sixty American Robins in my yard yesterday morning.  There also were a lot of European Starlings here too.  I took these pictures on Feb. 11, 2013 in my yard.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. VERY good pictures! Robins are so tame that they make a great photo subject, they let you get so close. I have never been able to snap a red winged blackbird! They stand on top of tall reeds on the side of country road and fly away when they see me.

    • Hi Ginny, Many thanks. Yes taking pictures of the Red-winged Blackbirds is hard – I am usually a long way off when I snap the photographs. Have a great Wed. tomorrow!
