[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The American robin is a migratory songbird of the thrush family. It is named after the European robin because of its reddish-orange breast, though the two species are not closely related, with the European robin belonging to the Old World flycatcher family. The American robin is widely distributed throughout North America, wintering from southern Canada to central Mexico and along the Pacific Coast. It is the state bird of Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin. According to some sources, the American robin ranks behind only the red-winged blackbird as the most abundant extant land bird in North America. It has seven subspecies, but only T. m. confinis of Baja California Sur is particularly distinctive, with pale gray-brown underparts.

Hello Muhammad
A lovely capture of this American robin in his natural setting. Nice composition and colours. Robins are such a treat to hear sing.

Hi Muhammad,
Nice shot of a tiny bird but the sharpness is not the best.
Obviously in a bad light.
Regards Jiri.
