|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|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 12.5–14.0 cm (5.0–5.5 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 unrelated birds 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, which are more closely related to crows.

Very nice capture of this common robin.
Beautiful photograph of the bird if we talk on its color and pose. But a few part of the photograph got hallows due to sharpening high. Bird's back portion; wings and tails.....then full branch.......where bird is resting. But the front portion of the bird didn't get hallows. Softer portion didn't get much hallows.
Thanks for sharing,
Rudzik to jeden z najbardziej lubianych przeze mnie ptakow, raz zdarzylo sie ze przylecial na moje podworko w srodku miasta. Piekny ptak w ladnym kadrze.
