Young robin

Young robins are adorable at this time of the year. They seem to have loads of confidence but then are uncertain how to behave.

This is one we saw yesterday

If you look carefully you can see the patch of darker feathers on its breast where the red will finally appear.

This is another young robin we saw today, which already has some red on its chest

It could actually be the same bird as in the first photo, but it seems unlikely that it would have developed quite so much red in one day.

I wish we had the same robins as you do (young or old)...I don’t mind the ones we do have, but yours are prettier!
