European Robin
Infos from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
European Robin
The European Robin

Scientific classification
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Passeriformes
Family: Muscicapidae
Genus: Erithacus
Species: E. rubecula
Binomial name
Erithacus rubecula
(Linnaeus, 1758)

The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula) is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family, but is now considered to be an Old World flycatcher, Muscicapidae. European Robins and similar small European species are often called chats.
The European Robin is a common European songbird. It is 12.5 - 14.0 cm (5.0 - 5.5 inches) long and it is known for its pugnacious behaviour despite its small size. The distinctive red patch on the chest of both sexes led to its original name of redbreast. In the fifteenth century, when it became popular to give human names to familiar species, the bird came to be known as Robin redbreast, which was eventually shortened to robin.
Robins have a fluting, warbling song in the breeding season. Robins often sing into the evening, and sometimes into the night, leading some to confuse them with the Nightingale. Both males and females sing during the winter, when they hold separate territories, the song then sounding more plaintive than the summer version. The female Robins move a short distance from the summer nesting territory to a nearby territory that is more suitable for winter feeding. Male Robins keep the same territory throughout the year.
Robins build a neat cup nest in crevices, holes or artificial sites such as discarded kettles. When juvenile birds fly from the nests thay are all brown in colour and do not have a red breast. After 2 to 3 months out of the nest, the juvenile birds grow some reddish feathers under their chins and over a further 2 to 3 months this patch gradually extends to complete the adult appearance.
The Robin is well known to British and Irish gardeners: it is relatively unafraid of humans and likes to come close when anyone is digging the soil, in order to look out for earthworms and other food freshly turned up; when the gardener stops for a break the robin might use the handle of the spade as a lookout point.

Hi Sebnem, excellent capture of this cute Robin. Harmonious colors and good composition too. Sharpness with a 700mm is perfect! Good job, best regards, Didier.

Hi Sebnem,
A wonderful picture. Very sharp picture on this small robin. POV, DOF, exposure are perfect. TFS

Tebrikler çok iyi netlik, kompozisyon ve rezolüsyon,500 f4 objektifin kalitesi açıkça belli oluyor,eski fotoğraflarınızada bugün baktım hepsi çok başarılı. Raptorman.

Hello Sebnem,
A lovely little fellow!
Seems like he is contemplating life, while he is giving the best possible pose...

Hi Sebnem,
I see it did not take that long for you to get the new equipment going! Beautiful shot, with excellent framing and very fine detail. Colours are bright and vivid - How would you compare these renditions [colours] with the results from the Nikon?

Brilliant image Sebnem. Colour, composition, sharpness and detail illustrate the superiority of your equipment.
I'm glad its you carrying that heavy gear around.
Nevertheless, with results like this I'm sure its all wothwhile.
have a great week

what a cute little bird!! and what an awesome photo of him! Great color crisp bright color..very nice. TFS

Now this is truly top quality! Should i assume you are beginning to like your new Canon toys? :)
The POV is excellent here and the DOF impecable, but what i like the most of all are the superb colors and tones everywhere in the frame.

In addition to your superior understanding of and mastery over technical aspects of photography, you have a highly refined sense of aesthetics too, Sebnem.
The colour of the fallen leaves on the surface on which the bird is standing makes a perfect match with the colour on the bird's chest. The OOF green BG not only provides a fine backdrop for the subject but also lends the picture unique depth and dimension.
Thanks for sharing the image and bye.

I like the location whole bird (from tail to beak) on the main diagonal. It is very expressive. Colours, blurriness, sharpness and great details create a very impressive and pleasant for look composition. Great creative work. TFS and my regards.

Hi, Sebnem.
Very beautiful. Exposure and sharpness are nearly perfect. Excellent details and colors. Nice compo and pose.

What a beautiful capture of my favourite garden bird, the composition is very nicely presented with a superb POV and pose, lovely sharp details and wonderful bright colours.

It looks so delicate and vulnerable on that big rock.

Hi Sebnem,
An excellent capture of this beautiful bird.Good colours,DOF and compo.

Nice one Sebnem, this is my favorite bird bar none. Great composition and sharpness, clarity of image. I never though you had the robin in Turkey, Good work.

Selam Sebnem;YORUM YOK!!!!

Hello Sebnem, I like this pic (we posted the same bird today), but I think there's to much saturation and colors seems not really true, maybe because of the cloudy day?
The post-production this time is good and we don't see any artifacts.
The tripod works fine! Did you use the IS on?

Another great shot with your new combo. Colors and sharpness are just amazing. I'm seriously considering buying that lens too even more after seeing the two shots you made with it.
Keep them coming.

Hi Sebnem,

The detail is awesome! Very beautiful! great shot!

Thanks for sharing,


ps So, I'm curious as to which camera you find that you favor?

Stunning capture Sebnem, I am always amazed at how you always get the best of these wildlife shots.
Well done.

This too is a GREAT register.
Loved your notes.
Our Canadian Robins are slightly larger. Shall post
one tommorrow. The one I have is not as nice.
This photo has excellent CLARITY.
Well focused, composed & presented.
Best regards, Mario.

Hello Sebnem,
fabulous painting - I very much like the repetition of reddish brown from the bird's chest in the leaves to the left and the right, and the very delicate colour contrast of well saturated browns and greens against the cool gray of some of the feathers. Thank you!
And a very sweet portrait of the robin that - by the way - is said to be a ruthless killer of competitors of its own kind invading into its territory.
Have a very good week, too, and best regards,

very cute one Sebnem,
nice capture, good point of vikew and a very good quality job, the dof is also nice, very good job.
gr. jaap

Hello Sebnem,

excellent colors on the bird, perfect details, very crisp, nicly composed and capture photo, perfect POV, BG, DOF great work,

TFS Kyle

my friend..and yours
of all the birds i feel this one is most photogenic and the friendliest..
one came into my kitchen...had a look round..looked at me...went out on the spade handle in the garden..then chirped so i would go out and dig worms..i did..he cocked his head at me..winked i think...and ate the worm
thanks for that warm reminder
the most striking thing about this shot is the superb technique and technical level of presentation...composition and tones are fine but the sharpness and textures are tremendous...

That's a truly brilliant shot!
Superb details and a very nice composition and well cropped! Take care ana:)

Hello Sebnem... another beautiful post with great sharpness, beautiful colors, good contrast with the unfocused bottom (perhaps lightly improvable with Neat Image).
I love the composition with the well uncentered bird and the small details as the withered leaves.

Hello Sebnem!

Very funny and cute small bird. Perfectly sharp and detailed, very well composed with BG. I like small leaves and blades of grass. Main subject is of course biggest star here :-) I hope you're glad with your new hardware my friend!

ps. Joanna is fine, but very busy again - new work. She asks me where we'll go to most beautifull city of Orient again :-)

All perfect: composition POV colors sharpness.
And the bird itself was beautiful (which is always a good start)

Perfect again, Sebnem,
this arrangement with the warm orange and fresh green is wonderful.
Sharpness on the bird can't be better, thanks, I love your cute robin so much, bye

There is a mistake in scientific classification

the familiy is "Turdidae"...robins are more related to the thrushes than to the flycatchers...

Hi Sebnem,

Usually I don't like it if a image is cluttered, but in this case the image is fantastic. It shows the robin where one expects to find it; in the undergrowth. I really like the composition in this picture a lot. Very well done.


Excellent composition of subject in habitat. The diagonal supports the image. I like the fact that the browns spots at each end match the brown throat of the bird. Very good details and nicely saturated colours. Well done, as usual. 30D, eh!

All the best for 2007, Sebnem, Bonne Année!

Merhaba Sebnem. As you can see, I love robins although I have never seen one. Different from your other one, in colour and mood, but equally perfect. Beautiful setting and light. Regards. Klaudio.

Merhaba Şebnem hanım, güzel bir pozda çok güzel bir nar bülbülü karesi. Elinize sağlık. İyi pazarlar.
