American Robin (Turdus migratorius) with feathers ruffled by a playful breeze! Much larger than our little Robin, length 10" wingspan 17" weight 2.7 ozs. Very territorial. Darker head with white patterning round the eye.
Still jet-lagged - will try and catch up with you all soon. In the meantime many thanks for your C&Cs on my Blue Tit upload at the beginning of last month - very much appreciated as always Smile

A lovely capture of the robin I'm used to. Not near as cute as the ones over where you live. Like the ruffled feathers..........Sandy
