Cold and Hungry
Photo: Vic Greenwood (Canon ixus 100is)
Wow, what a shot. Top notch, Vic.
Hungry? Its as fat as a Turkey!!!!
Thanks,Vic for this lovely picture. I'm so happy to see another REAL robin! I took my laptop around the house to show everyone!!
nice photo,bird looks overfed
Awww,isn't he gorgeous,and he looks full to the brim,lovely shot Vic.
Oooooh wikkle wobbin with attitiude!
Nice one Vic - looked good on the camera so I knew it was gonna be a good one :)
Wow just brilliant!!!
Nice one Vic!I'm not so sure about the hungry bit Vic,it looks well fed to me!I see there's bread on the menu,apparently bread has no nutritonal value whatsoever for birds.
Lovely robin, lovely photo.. Don't birds fluff up their feathers for insulation to keep warm..?
You are right Janet, they do fluff up their feathers to keep warm, there'll be more meat on a nasty fork than on that Robin. Great photo Vic.
What a lovely photo. Well done Vic. The robins over here in the States are huge and are nowhere near as photogenic as British ones.
think hes had his fair share....
What Janet & Cyril say, about fluffing up the feathers to keep warm, is exactly what they(Chris Packham/Kate Humble)said on the Snow Watch special last Friday night.
Thank you everyone for your nice comments. It was really cold the morning I took the photo, I was putting food onto the feeding table when this puffed up robin flew down and took food from my hand, then it just posed for photos. Don't know if it's female of male as the sexes are identical.
Lovely pic Vic, I thought it was the males that had the red breast and the females are just all brown??
nice one dad
nice one grandad
love you all the world xx :)
