Robin Red Breast



Just in time before Christmas this robin was watching me today plant the fruit bushes, and put down the new bird water containers. I have sunk two plastic bowls into the ground and surrounded them with little stones.There are now two small water sources in the garden.
I sprinkled bird seed around one and I think a large blackbird was eating before I turned around in the kitchen. It shot off quickly before I could even focus on what it was.
I love Robins and was so happy to see one hopping along the fence. He was on the fence, on the compost bin, and in the bird seed ground feeder!

I love Robins too. They are such cheeky little birds! They act like they own the whole garden, which seems quite silly being such tiny creatures! Cute!

Happy Xmas Salix Tree,I love the Robin.He is small but has high hopes, and is quite defensive of the bird table.He was brave first to eat the food, and all the rest have followed.
He is a garden spirit!
