I love these bold little guys. I aim this summer to try and get the one which lives in my garden to eat from my hand.

Robin - Erithacus rubecula

Adult is familiar red-breasted bird of gardens and woodland. Brown juvenile has streaked upperparts and underparts with crescent markings. Widespread resident throughout mainland Britain and Ireland. Alarm call a sharp tic. Male sings variation of melancholy song at most times of year. Highly territorial.

They come to my garden at winters and can live quite close to humans if not disturbed. So they can feed from your hand I think. Wonderful shot. :)

The robin will probably come real close if you kick up any piles of leaves you have lying round :) It seems to work every time. The one in my yard perches on the spade and waits for the bugs to run.

Yeah they love to follow you around if you are doing any digging. "My" robin will happily come within about 6 foot but I'd love it to hop onto my hand to grab a meal worm. :-)
