Camera Critters #49

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

The American Robins have come back strongly to the area. Spring is getting closer.
Click on the photo to get a better view.
I saw a different colored one in the field, a slate grey color with a white breast. It may be a female Towhee. The coloring truly stood out from the rest.
I think the American Robin has great eyes.
Here one sits in a tree and wants to talk to it's friends. The call of the American Robin is neat as it sings in the tree, watch the tail action. It is a short one.


This was my first video to share, I hope you enjoyed it.

nice video FG. That robin song is just a little like our Chaffinch song.

Judy said...

You certainly have more robins than we do, but I have seen one and heard a couple more. It is still a little early for them, though.
And I had never stopped to look at the white circle around the eye before! Thanks for pointing it out!

Hi Fishing guy sorry I haven't been here in a while.I sure have missed your wonderful pictures I can't wait for Spring so I can see all your critters.

Loved the video. Great for a first. I haven't ventured into the video thing yet. You may have just inspired me.
We do that a lot don't we? tee hee
The robins are here in full force now. And I'm loving it and your pics!

My robins are shy so far. I've seen a lot from other places, though. Yours are lovely, and I don't know why the one is different, but it is also good looking.

Glad you are still making good progress after your operation. It is amazing how long it takes to recover from surgery..And I just had my first robin Friday...I enjoyed the video clip.. Michelle

Tina said...

I'm with you..I love those robins and their songs. We have some major fatty robins this year showing up in our yard..where ever they spent their winter days must have had some good eats!!

Cute video..a bird tale of a bird's tail!

I like the viseo Tom. They have a great song. That ring around the eye makes them look very distinguished.

ChrisC and JonJ said...

What beautiful photos.And a neat video,too.

Yuppers, the critters are telling us by their migration that spring is on the way. Thankfully! Great captures, as always.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Oh you captured the robin's eye so well, they are all good but i like that one the best.

thanks for your comment and well i know its time to let go, but convincing dear hubby is another matter.

Kerri said...

Great capture!

Salty said...

Nice shots Tom! Like you I am checking for every hint of spring I can find. Take care my friend, recuperate, and remember fishing is just around the corner :)

You got lots of good pictures of the robins...come see mine. They are old photos scanned in...but I think you will enjoy them.

Robins are definitely a good sign that spring is almost here. When we got home, we were thrilled to have some crocus in bloom... We'll take pictures I'm sure this week.

Great pictures and very enjoyable video, Fishing Guy.

Abe said...

We noticed several dozen robins on the lawn under the crab apple trees picking up litter left by starlings that decimated the freeze dried fruit. The robins got all the stuff they dropped which was a lot.

I think the white frontal area is a sign of old age and is fairly common on most birds in the spring. It might be interesting to see if this one returns. I suspect it will not.

T and S said...

Ha Ha..That's an interesting video you posted. Especially the first half of the video.

The image just before the video has come out nicely.

NCmountainwoman said...

Very nice video. Isn't it great to see the Robins?

i beati said...

i'll miss them Sandy

TSannie said...

Are these the migrating robins or the ones that stay around all winter? I thought they all migrated...live and learn!

Trust recovery continues to go well. Nice series. The weather has things moving in VA as well. Blue Skies.

Dianne said...

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Ahh, robins. It makes me so happy to see them return!

George said...

Great pictures of the robins, Tom.

Gretchen said...

Haven't seen any robins around here yet, but it was 61 degrees here, so spring might be around the corner!

Paz said...

I love your bird photos.

An excellent post. The robins are here too now. Thanks for posting the video clip. I especially liked hearing the bird's song.

Great posts lately. I like the flowers and birds. These are great, too. I've been looking, just no time to comment. Baseball calls!
