Nothing brings the birds out more than freshly cut grass.

The difference between your Robin and our Robin couldn't be greater! Nomenclature is confusing sometimes. We would call the American Robin a Roodborstlijster, a kind of Thrush. Handsome looking bird though and a nice capture, Jim. He really stands to attention here and seems ready to take off at the first sign of trouble! :)

The robins I have seen on my English contacts pages look completely different as well.

Yes, the ones in the UK are the ones we have here too, the European Robin. They're an Old World bird. Your Robin is a strictly New World bird. :)

Ha, ha! One leg in the note! The robins are such a cheery and welcome sight around here too!

When you mow the lawn, the vibrations cause the insects to surface....I used to have a magpie love watching me mow my lawn in the afternoon. I'd go one way, it would swoop as I turned the mower, and then go to a branch for safety as I came back along, then as I"d go down again, once I reached the end, it would swoop...Nice shot Jim.
