Images of birds doing daily mundane things such as feeding appeal to me for their reality and authenticy, Bob. Most of us wait for a bird to pose for us like a model.
I like you picture of an American Robin pecking at droppings from a tree. We get to see it in a natural posture and also get the opportunity to note and admire its features.
I like it very much.

Very well seen and timed!

Nice colourful action shot of a feeding male American Robin, the red Oregon Grapes giving the feeling of autumn rather than spring on the bare ground.
Excellent POV and natural colours giving us a fine portrait of a species that is a rare visitor to Europe and one that I have never seen in real life.
Thanks for this and take care Bob,

After a day without electricity I'm back now.
Beautiful photo of this American Robin taklen from a very good POV in good sharpness and a natural colours. Very nice environment. Was the bird standing in this pose for 30 seconds?

A very good capture of this beautiful American Robin. Perhaps you have mistakenly posted the exposure to Exposure 6.0, 30 seconds instead of 6.0 1/558 secs. Hope you will correct it accordingly. Thanks a lot for sharing.

This is so different to the Robins I've seen in Britain an here in New Zealand. Robins are funny round things. This one does have the shape of a blackbird, as the name Turdus suggests.
The red breast is about the only similarity really.
A great shot of this one feeding though.

Great shot of this Robin eating his dinner. Nice detail and color. Love to see them in their natural environment as you show in this fine image.
We see them in the yard quite frequently as they search for nightcrawlers. What a sight to see one tugging on a worm who is half in and half out of the ground and streatched to the limit.

A good capture of the while it is eating. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the american robin. Using probably a tripod and an exposure speed of 30 seconds is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

I think it is a beautiful bird that you've captured here feeding on grapes on the ground. I like its pose and the beautiful 'autumn' colours!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
