Curious young Robin

Recommended Posts

Hung around me for 2 hours this morning. Perched on my knee for ages and kept jumping on my head if I wasn't paying attention. Wasn't interested in food, just curious and completely without fear.🙂

That first is a cracking image. I've never had them land on me, but I've had hem land on the feeding tables when I've been putting out seeds and then follow me to each one.

Cheers RW. First time I've seen this behaviour too, no feeders/birdtables nearby that I know of.

The same thought crossed my mind Clicker, lets hope its not curious about things with four legs.

Robins are fearless opportunists.  Dig the garden or weed the borders and they are there at your side waiting for worms.  Never had them perch on me though.  Very nice set of images Chris.

Interesting, I doubt Australian robins would be so tame around humans - they may have adapted to being fed over generations. I’ve seen Yellow Robins perch on my spade handle to get a view of possible worms in newly dug soil when I lived in the wet Yarra Valley.  

 The first two photos are great for showing up close detail but the third is perhaps a better balanced composition, in my humble opinion.

Thanks John. Agreed re: composition CMunzel, most of the time it was too close to compose anything 🙂  This is a regular haunt for me so hopefully I'll get another chance.
