My World Tuesday ...



or should that read "His" World Tuesday?!



This little fella doesn't look too perturbed by the snow, and is all fluffed up and healthy. He's an American Robin (Turdus migratorius) - who is actually a thrush - but seems to have got stuck with the robin name due to the likening to those other European fellas with the red chest.

  3. And I always thought of them as a spring bird that doesn't stick around for the cold weather. I invite you to come see some boats, floats and mountain goats. - Margy

  4. Poor little thing, looks really cold out there, but you're right, he doesn't seem to mind too much.

  5. Lovely pictures. I would not call him a robin. He has a lot more red than our robins. He is beautiful.
