|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Robins are small birds with a body length of 14cm. They have a distinctive red face and breast, and brown wings and back. The red breast is bordered by a thin grey-blue border. Male and females look alike but juveniles have a spotted, scalloped plumage with no red.
They range across Europe including the Mediterranean islands, North Africa, east to West Siberia and Iran.
Robins prefer woodlands, parks, gardens and farmland with hedges.
They mainly feed on insects and spiders, but they also eat seeds, fruits and berries.
Although shy birds over much of their range, robins have learnt to make use of gardeners and watch the owners as they dig up their gardens. They then take advantage of the newly-exposed soil to forage for worms and other invertebrate prey. Robins are notoriously aggressive towards each other. Both males and females are territorial and the red breast is fluffed out in display. They will even attack a bundle of red feathers or their own reflection, mistaking it for another individual.
