My new Robin is the friendliest creature on this planet! S/he comes to me every time I am putting the food out, and really close, has done from the start, no hesitation. Even makes eye contact :D . This morning, s/he came and had few seeds right next to a couple of guys who are doing some work in my garden, again, no hesitation or fear :wow: .
I never hear him sing though, which is a bit weird :scratch: . I wonder if it might be a female, I heard they don't sing :scratch:

The males sing as a territorial warning to others. Perhaps there is little threat so singing is a wate of energy.

Have a robin or two that come in. One on the large plot and one on the smaller plot. Cant get anywhere near them though.

About a hundred yards up the road from my house is a mini-roundabout. It has to deal with the merger of three roads and is quite busy. The traffic is no discouragement to the local Robins though and a daily battle of song takes place. There are three sides to the roundabout and seemingly a separate Robin for each. I'm not sure if it ever gets physical but is certainly melodic. :nod:

Went out into the garden with the sparrow food. Suet pellets and live mealworms. Put the pot down and a robin flew onto the pot and helped itself. First time a robin has done that in the garden.

Robins are regular visitors to my garden feeding on the sunflower hearts from my feeder.

Usually when I see my Robin he/she is either feeding on the SF hearts or waiting for the other birds to clear off the feeder. :nod:

My robin is around, but doesn't spend much time in one place, in and out of the garden all the time. Probably busy with his nest somewhere I guess :nod:
