Set B1 - British Birds - card information

16. The Robin
(Erithacus rubecula)

16. The Robin

There are few birds more familiar or better loved than the Robin or Redbreast. Its song delights us nearly all the year round. It comes with charming impertinence to take food not only from the birdtable but from the windowsill. It is only when it has a nest on its mind that it becomes shy and elusive. Here we have a family in a nook of the ivy on the garden wall, the old bird diligently feeding the young ones in their immature spotted plumage.
