[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the European robin (Erythracus rubecula), which is half the size of the American robin (which, in fact is a thrush...Turdus migratorius). I'm citing the Latin names from memory and can't be sure of their spelling.
Any purists out there will no doubt correct me if I've erred.
