Hi Carole, what a great photo of this beautiful bird.
The first picture is my favorite.
This species is not in Netherlands.
Best wishes, Irma

The Australia Robins really do take the prize in the World Robin Stakes if you ask me - and I've been lucky enough to see Robins in Europe and the USA.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

I hope he sticks around for you. I had one here about a week ago but he moved on. Other years we have had them for the whole winter/spring. Even sighting him for a moment, that flash of red certainly lifts one's spirits.

Another first...never saw this robin before...lovely!

Your first photo reminds me of old old photos showing women wearing their small pillbox hats tipped onto their foreheads. Very spiffy! And I understand how thrilled you were to spot this beauty. Glad you were able to get such great photos.

Thank you for introducing me to a new Robin species!
I hope to see one in person and will consider myself fortunate if I could take photographs of it as wonderful as yours.

Robins and wrens are the sweetest little creatures .... beautiful captures Carole.

Helma said...

Here I am a bit jealous of Carole;-)
What a beautiful and colorful bird. Even his little face is orange. Really cool.
