American Robin


This big chubby American robin came to visit one day, and it just stood there to stare at me. Maybe it's questioning me for the food since the bird feeder was hanging empty above its head. There was not even a little crumb on the ground when the robin arrived.


This is the chubbiest robin that I have seen around here. It skipped back and forth in a ritual so I just have to take the pictures. It was very peculiar to see.


Then came a smaller and skinnier robin. I was for sure that they all looked for foods when I saw the same ritual of skipping back and forth around this tree where I hung the feeder.

Enjoy other entries at Camera Critters, and Bird Photography Weekly!

Thanks for being here!

  1. Lovely photos and mosaic of the Robins. I guess they were looking for worms?

  3. Chubby he is, maybe he was puffed up to make himself look interesting to a female. When she arrived they did their dance around the tree, is this a good place to build a nest. Just a thought, have a great day!

  13. Mumsy, your robin is so cute and chubby! I have never seen one this chubby. I think he was looking for some food - no worms to be found, or he was too lazy to look? He was so sweet to pose, we have to forgive him for being lazy. :-)

  14. Beautiful photos! I think the American Robin is a little bit bigger than the European Robin that we have in my country.

    Have a delightful Sunday,

    Ciao! :)
