    That is cool fangman, I like them both. What kind of bird is this ~ I'm a terrible 'bird' person. Perhaps I need to learn!

    Did you pay with feeding them?

    This is our European Robin and appears on millions of Christmas Cards in Britain and all over the world in parts of what was the British Empire.

    Known as Robin Redbreast in children's stories and nursery rhymes such as "Who killed Cock Robin".

    It is very nervous around the feeders or table but will get under your feet whilst digging in the garden.

    In some cases they become very tame and can be hand fed. About the size of a chickadee.

    Thank you for the reply and it is a beautiful Robin.
    So that's where the Robin Redbreast came from!
    Dang I learned something today.

    The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), most commonly known in Anglophone Europe simply as the Robin, is a small insectivorous passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family (Turdidae), but is now considered to be an Old World flycatcher (Muscicapidae). Around 12.514.0 cm (5.05.5 in) in length, the male and female are similar in colouration, with an orange breast and face lined with grey, brown upperparts and a whitish belly. It is found across Europe, east to Western Siberia and south to North Africa; it is sedentary in most of its range except the far north.

    The term Robin is also applied to some birds in other families with red or orange breasts. These include the American Robin (Turdus migratorius), which is a thrush, and the Australian red robins of the genus Petroica, members of a family whose relationships are unclear.

    Thanks for commenting.

    It is a difficult line to pick - either try and get the image of a bird as it appears in front of the camera or go for the brightened, saturated contrasty image suitable for a Christmas card. However you calibrate your screen - unless you are in a studio with constant light - you will find variations - more so as now I am viewing elsewhere on a laptop.

    I go back to the days of dish developing glass plates through 120 and 35mm film in the darkroom and early days of colour developing and Cibi printing. . . . Lightroom and Photoshop are a dream and have been using these since they first came out.
