American Robin


Would you believe that I've never photographed an American Robin before? I shot this one when I photographed the Cedar Waxwings.

Hi Steve,
If you haven't, then that's pretty good for a first attempt.

Great photo. I love how you picked up all of the white in its feathers.

We tend to forget about the common folk sometimes! He's a beauty.

Beautiful!!! I'd say it looks like you're an old pro at this. :)

This is definately postcard or calander quality, would look beautiful framed...anything you want to do with it. Gorgeous. I can't wait to see my first here in Western Mass.

I see you're from the eastern part of our lovely bay state. Nice to meet you, neighbor!

Well Roy, I've attempted them before! Never had much luck till now.

Ya Kim, I was looking at the breast feathers. It’s looking like it’s about time for a new set. The streaking under the chin is pretty neat.

Hi Eve, I think that most Robins that I see are on lawns and I just don’t do lawn shots.

Hi Mary, Thanks. Yes, I’m more of a middle-aged pro at this, LOL, Good to see you stop by.

Hey Kelly, Glad you got your commenting fixed and it wasn’t a special “Steve problem”.

Howdy Pagan Sphinx, Thanks for stopping by! Pagan Sphinx has a Western Massachusetts blog worth checking out. (I hope your weather is better than our weather today. I think the weatherman lied, it was supposed to be partly sunny and high forties.)

Nice shot and great light!

One of my favorite photo shoots was a flock of American Robins and a few Cedar Waxwings on the pond. I guess they hunt down the same fruits at the same time.

I think Robins pose nicely.
