American Robin, or North American Robin

Turdus migratorius, is not a true Robin, it is a member of the Thrush Family (Turdidae)
Erithacus rubecula is a true Robin all of which are European

This guy always followed me around he had a nest on my front Verandah.  He would follow me threw the garden and I would dig up a few warms for him to take. He would come within 1.5 meters of me.

    this robin is a darling.
    when bernie and used to make deliveries on the north side of welland, it was a very rare thing to spot a robin...all the junk that people put on their lawns!
    no siree..they had lawns that looked like beautiful green carpets but no robins!
    ha! we sure don't have perfect lawns in the war time houses, but we sure have a lot of fine feathered friends Birdman of Alcatraz!
