American Robin

American robin

Yesterday, I took a scenic route home from the hospital. It was raining and there were puddles, but I didn't see any worms where this robin was searching for supper.  It was foraging in the middle of a country gravel road. Sounds scary to me!

I am linking with Saturday Critters HERE.

A good capture of the little fellow.

It's rewarding seeing them, isn't it? You take care.

Judy said...

It does seem like it's gazing off into the distance, maybe looking where to go next :)

Cute shot of the robin..I see the birds next to the road all the time, they must be finding something good there. Thank you for linking up to my critter party. Happy Easter!

Oh Robyns like to pick up gravel much like chickens. Great shot. Hope all is going well at the hospital. Happy Easter. HUG B

Are you finally convinced that spring is coming?

Maybe he was just taking a stroll- oh I am so glad it is spring..great shot!

Phil Slade said...

Yes, you do wonder why birds choose to live dangerously when an apparently good feeding spot can be yards away. A good photo opportunity for you though and a well taken shot.

It's so great to see the Robins, isn't it. Maybe she's pondering where to build her nest.
I hope things are going well at the hospital.
Have a Blessed Easter.

Sandra said...

he is pretty and hope he moved out of the road... so why is an American Robin in Canada in the middle of your road? LOL

They look so different from our English Robins that I find it difficult to understand why they have the same name. Interestingly ours were originally called Redbreasts, Robin was added as a childish nickname but then became more widely accepted. It's rather like all lambs becoming Larrys or mules becoming Muffins!

Sweet capture. I love robins and they sure live life dangerously as they flit back and forth across roadways to get to grass and food. We have hit them while driving and it makes me sad.

RedPat said...

They seem to be all over the place this last week!

I like American robins but for cuteness they don't come anywhere close the European ones!

Frank said...

Regardless what it was doing it posed nicely for you.

Sue said...

Great pic! My mom loves robins because her last name is Robbins, and they are always using that likeness for word play. For example, they call their house "The Robbins Nest."

The robins are very busy in the garden right now ... finding worms, nesting, and just hopping all over the ground.

That's a great shot! It does make you wonder what they are thinking sometimes.

The very common Robin is always a joy to see and even more so in spring.
Have a Blessed Easter.

Randy said...

I saw a few of those on my hike today. They were too fast for me to catch a shot.

Shey Wicklund said...
