Robin scurrying through grass

in photography •  18 days ago

These birds seem to like to walk and run around more than fly when staying in an area. They are quick on their feet and move around a lot. The Robins bob their head up when they pause to look around and it has an interesting look to it.

The chest on this bird has more texture to it than other Robins ive seen, but im pretty sure its still a Robin. Maybe this one just has more white in the orange plumage.

The Robin pauses and looks around the area for prospective food, it runs and pauses and then runs some more and pauses again. I hope it found something that day, though I did not see it find anything. I usually see them working together in teams so maybe this bird was not so lucky without its friends.

I find their beak to have interesting patterns in it. As if they were spotted, maybe this is another way to notice Robins. Its the subtle things with nature you must notice to differentiate them.

@deepsouthpiddlin oh nice, the robins have always impressed me. They run around with quite the stride.

Yes, I noticed the other day how that look and run around as if they are waiting on something from above, they are definitely interesting to watch. I really enjoy them this time of year. My lawn is sometimes covered with them and then sometimes there are just a few together. Good stuff! I'll post some those photos soon ;) @solominer

Great shots. Yes, it’s a robin. The robins in my yard have that more textured look right now too. In a week or two, they’ll have rich, rust-colored breasts. I think the textured look is the reddening of their individual feathers in preparation for mating season. :D



That makes sense, their plumage is probably changing between seasons. Thanks for the confirmation.
