Birds like fences, too


First an oldie...taken south and east of Terre Haute Indiana in 2011....

Then we have this robin on a fence post, taken today.   I am trying to keep the promise to myself to take more pics of robins.

I am linking these to Tex's Good Fences.    Thank you so much for hosting the meme, Tex!

Both are really great photos, Rose! I still can't believe the difference in size of an American Robin and our wee European robin!

Both of these images are very good. I like how the robin is looking back at the camera person.

It is funny how we take Robins for granted. They are pretty too. I just took one perched in one of the Cherry trees. I think he was claiming his spot for when the cherries are ripe. LOL

Birds and Fences do seem to go together well. Loved both of your birds and their fence perches.

Who can resist those sweet doves? Nice robin shot. They are beautiful birds, and often overlooked. Presently I'm overlooking starlings! There were close to 30 in my yard today!
