Oh so typical picture of a little robin with his chest puffed out. This was taken in November 2008 during a snowstorm in York, North Yorkshire, UK.
The UK’s favourite bird – with its bright red breast it is familiar throughout the year and especially at Christmas! Males and females look identical, and young birds have no red breast and are spotted with golden brown. Robins sing nearly all year round and despite their cute appearance, they are aggressively territorial and are quick to drive away intruders.
