This is one from last year at same time...but today we have a whole lot more snow, our water is frozen in the apartment and I went out once at -1 degree F...wind chill is 20 below US...forget it...so archives it is..
I am kind of glad I saved this one..It sort of fits since it was taken in December. robins are usually not around much at this cold time of year, but last year I caught this one as he eyed the snow patch on the ground. It was the last day I saw a Robin until late late winter almost into spring...

Of the many American birds that I would like to see for real this Robin is one of them.
As the chances of my doing that are minimal I shall have to be content with viewing this. I'm not complaining Bob, its a great shot like one that an old birder like me would love to take: it's got all the fine qualities, especially the colours and sharpness taken from a great POV to show it at its best. Great that you kept it for a year.
I thank you for that sir !

Hello Bob,
An image I see of a dream you are having presently with all the warm hues cast in this post. Sounds like you got chill there along with the snow! We got snow now and it is a mess out on the roadways, and for the next week we will be down into the teens with the low temp's.
Excellent detailed image of this beautiful but often noisy in the early mornings, Robin...

Hi Bob,

I would never say "just a robin" - I have to go to Colorado to see them. I still think the American Robin is one of the most beautiful birds of all. This is excellent - showing just how beautiful they are. Deep rich colors - fine details - wonderful pose - lovely setting and composition. There had to be a touch of snow, didn't there? By the way, you picked the wrong day to wish you were in AZ. The temp is going down - right now it's 44 degrees. Been raining all morning, cloudy, foggy and the Catalina Mountains have disappeared.


Hi Bob,
I never saw such a robin before. Ours here are different.
Black head and yellow beak, that's beautiful.
Thanks and greetings

Hi Bob,

The american robin is impressive. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the bird. The subject is well frame. The light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.


Ciao Bob, lovely little bird with fantastic colors, good details and great sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Bob,

Hello Bob,
Great capture of this lovely american robin, beautfiul
colors and clarity, superb sharpness, depth of field
and details.
well done.

What a lovely bird, Bob! I rarely see birding shots from you, and you prove that you're a master here too....
Stunning is the least I can say.The POV and timing are superb!
And no, I don't have to travel half way round the globe for snow, I belong to the Himalayas, it can't get higher than that on earth!
Thanks so much!

Hello Bob,
How are you!
Many thanks for sharing this cute Robin which captured last year!
the pose is nice with rich and warm colouration on it also in great details
my warmest regards to you and Jane, wishing you both having a merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

hello Bob

excellent shot of one of my prefered birds,
with fine POV, DOF and framing,
excellent sharpness and details,



Hello Bob

A brightly coloured robin it is too.
The pose is classic,it appears to be listening for food.
Well placed in the frame.
I had one hanging around here as well ,it either perished or flew farther south.I like to feel it garnered enough energy to fly farther south.

Bravo, Bob.
Amazing picture of a very nice bird. Scenery is so wonderful and you have reflected it so perfectly as main subject. Wide DOF is selected excellently. Colours are rich and bright. Lovely for me sharpness and details are great too. My compliment and all the best.

Hi Bob

Lovely view of this Amweican Robin. Nice pose and detail. I must admit, every time I see one of these, part of me wants to shout 'that's not a robin - it's a thrush'! - the sins of the Founding Fathers ;)


Ciao Bob,
bellissima cattura in una splendida posa a terra, ottimi POV e DOF che mostrano molto bene le caratteristiche di questo bellissimo uccello, mi piace molto il terreno disseminato dei colori di frutti, erbe e della neve, ottima nitidezza, molto belli i colori.

Hello Bob,
Your Robin is quite different of our, seems to be a little bigger.
I like this shot taken in a natural environment and showing how close the Robin's colors are to the surrounding.
I hope you can deal with the cold..here it's cold too, but now from time to time we see the sun:-) In the Alps there are loads of snow, I will have to dig my way through to go in my chalet next week.
Best regards and hello to your wife

Hello Bob,
It feels good to have some warm colours in the archive when the cold hits us! This is a beautiful capture of the American Robin showing off its lovely colours. Great focus and fine details and I like the matching colours in the background. Very nice!
TFS and kind regards, Ulla
