I went for silliness again today on the 8 a.m. blog, these are some of the pictures that I did not use. One of the things I always notice when I shoot robins is how varied the plumage is among individual birds, especially around the eye ring.
A combination of slight plumage differences and a different angle make this bird look much less Robiny.
This bird, again just from the plumage variation and different pose, could be mistaken for a Kestrel if you ignore the beak.
This bird (not a Robin) was singing a song that sounded like she was singing ooo, baby ooo. I said ooo.
