April 10th

Yesterday's shot was of this birdie that's been waking me up with his dawn chorus.......

The American Robin,much bigger than the robin we had in our garden back in England.Their song and size is similar to the blackbird,another garden bird from the UK.
I tend to only see these early in the morning when the light isn't great in my backyard and they hop around so much luckily he hopped into the sun and stood still for a second !

yes, don't they have an annoying sing song at 5 o'clock in the morning, great shot!

I love robins. I've been trying for a week now to get a shot of one, but you're right, their hopping makes it very difficult!
