Good evening folks,
Today I have a shot of one of the Robins that visit the feeders at my hide.
At first glance you may think that he is in full voice, but you would be wrong.
He is in fact in the process of regurgitating the un digestible parts of his last meal.
I wasn't quick enough to catch the ejection, but I'm sure many of you have seen this behaviour.
Many thanks for the C&C's on yesterdays Reed Bunting.
Thanks for looking.
Colin

Great Shot. You could have pased it off as signing because the Robin is one bird that will sing all year round. Images size and composition spot on. Some images work well if the bird is not huge in the picture and this is a good example.
