Rose Robin

While I'm here, I might aswell post a few photos.

This is my friend, the Rose Robin. He sits on my chair outside and sings to me almost all day long.

His wife sits on eggs close by , while he spends a lot of time with me. He has started to bring me presents. I have no idea if anybody has ever come across anything like it? But he brings bugs, sings to me and then flies off, leaving the bugs on the fence.

Here he is.

O, forgot to tell you, in the second photo you can see one of the bugs he leaves as a present on the fence.

Has anybody ever seen behaviour like this?

This is so sweet. I've never seen anything like this.

So adorable! They are often curious birds- but that doesn't mean they go around giving insects to everyone!

Aiming for DSLR-quality shots with a bridge camera

Great set and good to see you posting again M-L. Is see on the chair that the insects are not the only gift he leaves you.

Haha, you should see the rest of my garden furniture, it's covered in poop. He was just filling in time with me , I think,

The young have hatched, and both are busy now. I can hear him behind the house now, but only see him frequently.

It has been a great experience for me.
