The Flight of the Robin

European RobinI have spent a good part of today watching the garden birds and they have given me some wonderful  moments which I would like to share with you.

First I need to tell you why I have been watching them. A couple of days ago I saw the Sparrowhawk back in the garden. Today I have been watching him. I think that it is an immature male. I photographed him making a kill and I will post that later. It will be clearly signposted so that you won’t stumble upon it accidentally and will be easy to avoid by using the “Recent Posts” link on the sidebar. I find it a bit distressing and realise that you may not want to see that but it is nature and I consider myself a naturalist. We will talk about it later.

The other birds that I am going to feature are  still going about their business. The Hawk has been about all day and these pictures were taken before and after his visits.

Now I should really have called this post “How Good a Cook I Am!” 🙂 The Robins love my food but they don’t always seem to be able to hang on to the coconut shell and they have to use their wings a lot to stay in place.

I could watch and photograph these animals all day, I love them to bits but there are others who need my attention. Clear off little Robin.

And remember… Be careful out there. It is a dangerous world.
