One sings in our garden every morning before we are out of bed and I am usually up early. This is a chick we had in 2015.

A sight to gladden one's heart this morning - a robin knocking seven bells out of another robin :fence: :drumroll:.
Spring is sprung and the courtship of Erithacus rubecula has begun :clap: :tampoline: :thumbsup:

Looked out this morning - 2 robins inside the feeder cage, enjoying a mid-morning snack !!
I approve of Rexit's choice - she looks a steady lass, she'll tame him a bit :chuckle: :hug2:

Rexit, sitting on top of the feeder cage waiting for brekkers - obediently sallied forth and heard close by the tiny "whisper call", sotto voce, presumably from his beloved, Rubella :unsure: :shrug:. He selected a sunflower heart and took it into the pyrawotsit :love: :hug2: :cry2:
Young love .......

He's a bit late for Valentine's Day methinks. I think house hunting will soon commence. so I hope you have some reasonable options for the happy couple. :nod:

I have a friend who trains a Robin every year to be hand fed.

The one this year seems like he fancies a bit more than just mealworms!!
