British Robins ... can't beat them! Wherever I've lived there has always been a robin who has totally befriended me - and I've always named them "Tim" in honour of one of my fave authors Derek Tangye, who wrote about one in his books ♥ It's unusual to see two sitting together like this; despite their endearing image they are very aggressive little birds, and will fight to the death over their territory.

Possibly the best known of the North American spotted brown thrushes and the only one that commonly nests in parks and gardens, the 8-inch-long wood thrush is noted for its incredibly musical song, a flutelike ee-oh-lay. The wood thrush is known by several other names, including bellbird, in reference to its clarionlike song.
