American Robins are quite plentiful around where I live. They are some of the first birds you see this time of year as winter slips away and spring edges closer. I love their beautiful golden breasts and dark gray heads - a lovely combination. They are quick - you only get a glance before they take off.

I'll have to look up the robins there - do they have a special name? Scottish Robins? ;-)
