Infos from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
European Robin

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 Omer.
We live next each other however I have not met robin in our region. May be I am not luck bird photographer. Very impressive dark colours palette and wonderful shot of the fine bird taken with so long tele lenses. Composition of the shot, sharpness and details of the bird feathers and other even tiny features is amazing. Great job and my best wishes.

Hello Omer,
Nice to see that you are back after some months of absence. Your Robin picture is like all your precedent pictures well composed, with fine colors and perfect sharpness. A cute little Robin you show us here.
Thanks
Anne

Hello Omer
Yes, I also do want to welcome you back. I surely missed your bird images a lot. These Robins are often seen on Trek Nature but are one of those birds one does not get tired of. I like this little one's fine chest feathers. They are very delicate and fluffy looking. Although I agree with your title as this bird do look lonely, you have chosen a fine image for your comeback. Hope we see some more soon.
Kind regards
Anna

Hi Omer,

Nice pov, dof and bg.

Hi Omer. Your Robin In turkey is just the same as the one we have in England. You have captured a very typical pose from this one with good detail and rich colours. Stands out well from the plain Bg. well done TFS. Interesting notes too.

Hi Omer,

I never expected to see a robin from Istanbul! I love the wistful expression on its face. A robin's colors are always beautiful but in this picture they are more so - especially against the wonderful background. The face, eye, slightly opened beak and the magnificent plummage are a feast for the eyes. A splendid composition.

This is a beautiful portrait of this robin. The clarity is exceptional, with spot on focus and wonderful detail. Excellent eye detail and catch light. The colours are deep and vibrant.
The red and blue contrast so well. A wonderful POV with excellent DOF.Best regards,

Again an excellent job Omer,
The natural light and low key exposure, with its light & shadows, attaches a tangible mood to the image. Outstanding color & detail.
Well done!

Hello Omer,
I like that particular part of the plumage on the left hand side probably in this condition due to the wind...
Here you can see the details very well through the natural light and the focus of course.
