The Robin is a nice little songbird with brownish wings, back and tail and a rusty-red "bib" which covers most of the breast and the face. Compared to the rest of the body this birds looks rather big-headed. Most impressive are the Robin's beady eyes.
The Robin has thin and long legs. On the ground it mainly hops with both legs and only rarely walks with small steps.
Robins breed in woodlands, gardens, parks, on forest edges which are adjacent to open areas. We know the Robin as a frequent guest in yards, gardens, on terraces and on balconies where it loves to attend to bird feeding all year.
