    I saw a field full of Robins last week. Even though many of them are staying further north each year, I still think of them as the harbinger of spring. I love to see them.

    Wait! Is that the same as the Poopus volante rosso?
    I LOVE them! And miss them, terribly. (Although I did spot a couple still vacationing on the Beauty Berry at the nature preserve yesterday.) So be happy they are moving north.
    Very nice photo.

    such a lovely bird, so unlike our robins…

    I don’t mean to imply that Uk robins aren’t lovely by the way, they’re one of my favourite birds, I mean only that your robins look different to ours…

    I haven’t seen a robin since we’ve been back in California. I’m so glad to see this one.

    Ohh, thanks for sharing your robin. I can’t wait to see them again!

    Are you spoofing us on the scientific name? Methinks.

    Except–I just looked it up, and you aren’t.
    What a funny scientific name. Someone had fun.

    Until I became a birder, I thought all robins went south for the winter. When I started paying attention, I realized they could be found all the time.
    But I really hate the latin name. I mean….turdus?
    🙂
