[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a robin that I have uploaded for Nicholas Glen (NGlen). This is for him because of all the great small bird photos he uploads and all the comments he leaves. I chose a robin because it is his favorite small bird.
Hope you enjoy.

The Robin is a plump bird with bright orange-red breast, face, throat and cheeks edged with grey, a white belly and olive-brown upper parts.

The sexes are very similar, if not identical, though some texts suggest that the brown forehead is "V" shaped in females, and "U" shaped in males, though even this is not always apparent. They have a brown bill and legs.
The juvenile Robin has speckled buff-brown upper parts and underparts. They have no red feathers so that adult birds do not attack them in territorial disputes. The speckled feathers are lost in a partial moult when the bird is about two to three months old.

Hi Sion. I am so honoured to have this fine picture dedicated to me , also my favourite bird. You have taken this one with sharp focusing and fine detail head on. Your use of the flash has given bright natural colours. It stands out so well against the dark background. Once again a very big thanks.

Hello Sion,
This is really a cute picture of the lovely Robin and a nice dedication to Nick, one of our bird-specialists.
Very well taken shot of the bird sitting on a fine branch with funny little buds. Excellent sharpness too.
Very well done

Hi Sion,

A beautiful Robin and a perfect picture to dedicate to Nick. A lovely pose on the tree and nice colors and details of the cute face and pretty feathers. It seems that you are attracting the same birds as Nick - I wouldn't know what most of them were if not for him. I like your style!

Hello Sion,
A super image of this dainty little Robin. Love the fine detail and the way he is clutching the diagonal branch. Good eye contact with that wonderful catchlight twinkle. Beautiful natural colors!! TFS.
