Robin on the Rocks

The unusually long winter this year resulted in the snowdrops staying around for many many weeks. This photo was taken on the 9th April and they are still in full bloom. Maybe that is why the red breasted robin is giving them a good look over as is rests on the rock.

Now what other red birds are there?
'Might Red' in the Fan Zone, Anfield
Oh yes , the "Mighty Red" Liver Bird. The mascot they have started to use in community work, here posing for pictures. Then once posed
having a chat, possibly about those tiny wings.  I don't think this thing can fly.
The Kop, Anfield
Now that banner shows the mythical Liver Bird, symbol of Liverpool,  resplendent in red, those wings would surely fly high.

RICH REDS all around! Love the vibrant takes on all those robins, they are a sweet sight in spring (and also in stadiums or out-and-about on streets:).

Beautiful picture of the robin and cheerful pictures of the mascot =) I have a picture of me somewhere as a small child looking uncomfortable with the chick-a-fli mascot
