Wild Birds – Robin


We have mank Robins around the farm, they are quite aggresive and territorial. When your outside working you will often find yourself accompanied by a Robin especially if you are digging in the soil. They are always ready to grab a tasty uncovered treat. Robins sing nearly all year round and Their bright red breast earns them the name “Robin Redbreast”

How do the robins build their nests?
Robin Redbreast told me.
First a wisp of amber hay
In a pretty round they lay;
Then some shreds of downy floss,
Feathers too and bits of moss,
Woven with a sweet, sweet song,
This way, that way, and across,
That’s what Robin told me.

Where do the robins hide their nests?
Robin Redbreast told me.
Up among the leaves so deep,
Where the sunbeams randy creep,
Long before the winds are cold,
Long before the leaves are gold,
Bright-eyed stars will peep, and see
Baby robins, one, two, three;
That’s what Robin told me.
