A Robin's Feast: for Ruby Tuesday


I saw an American Robin in our feeder area and going to our garden room to tell of its appearance, the Robin turned the corner of the house and landed in the Mountain Ash tree right in front of us; and I immed- iately thought of Ruby Tuesday as I watched it start to eat the red berries! WOW ... wonderful , oh wonderful!

I haven't seen a robin in months. Do you belong to the PFW e-mail list? There are some very nice people on it..

Ralph said...

The red berries are quite ruby, indeed. Although the breast on this robin has more of a deep ruby color instead of the more usual burnt orange. Maybe its the sky?

the teach said...

Yes, indeed, wonderful, oh wonderful! Happy Ruby Tuesday!

You take wonderful outdoor photos! Perhaps you could ocaissonally describe how you take your photos for those of us photographically handicapped! What is the tree the robin is in?

Roger said...

What a capture! Awesome RT!! :D

Raven said...

Wonderful shots. For some reason it reminds me of a year eternities ago when I was in my teens and we had cedar waxwings (rare visitors) who got a touch tipsy on berries from (I think) a "firethorn" bush. Don't know why this beautiful robin shot reminded me of it, but it did.

What a cool shot, it almost looks like a painting.

I like the first shot with the berry in mid air. Great shots.

Mary said...

These are terrific! It's amazing that you captured that first berry in the air away from his mouth! That looks like a good tree to have for feeding birds! Perfect Ruby Tuesday post!

Pagan Sphinx said...

What a photograph. I just can't get birds with my camera. Partly, it's my impatience in waiting for them to come to me.

Thank you for the gorgeous photo.

Patti said...

Wonderful capture! How did you do it?

Happy Ruby Tuesday.

2sweetnsaxy said...

Great shots and definitely plenty of red! I like in the first shot that the berry is suspended in the air in it's beak. :-) Cool!

April said...

These are beautiful! Fantastic photo of the Robin holding the bright red berry in its beak. I'm curious as to how you took the first one - it looks as if the berry is in midair. Are these the berries that the Robins get tipsy on?

april:
These are Mountain Ash berries in a tree outside my windows. I saw two Robins in the tree and noticed that they were eating the berries. I simply took a burst of pictures whenever I saw them reaching and feeding on the berries. I think the one falling in mid-air was caused when one of the Robins was pulling on one of the berries.

Glad you enjoyed the photos. I was really pleased when I realized the action that I had caught.

magiceye said...

beautiful captures..!

Becky and Gary said...

Oh, that is a gorgeous RT! I didnt know Robins ate Mountain Ash berries. I haven't seen Robins in a while, and I assumed they had all flown South.
Happy RT even though I'm a day late.

Geraldine said...

Amazing photos (as usual) Ann and what a great offering for Ruby Tuesday.

Wow, beautiful photos, Ann! I love the "action" shot as poor Robin drops his ruby snack.

Hope you had a good Thanksgiving!

Mary said...

Love that new header! I assume we will see more shots of these birds???

Rambling Woods said...

Now that is one lucky Robin...

Margaret Cloud said...

The Robin is my very favorite bird, very nice photos. I raised a Robin from a broken egg shell, his name was King Arthur, I invite you to my blog site to read his story.
