Robin (Erithacus rubecula)

These cute baby Robins with their afro style hairstyle were nesting in my summer house window box under a flower pot.  I did not grow flowers just Robins, I clipped a plastic budgie feeder to the box, which I use for my tree spiders as a water dish. As soon as I placed crickets into it the feeder the mother would fly down in front of me and feed her young with the crickets. I once had a Robin fly into my summer house asking for crickets when I was feeding my Tarantulas, probably attracted by the crickets singing and took the food from small tweezers. It usually takes a few weeks to tame a Robin to hand feed. I did not see the babies fledge as I was on holiday. I hope they made it ok.

Pictures were taken May 2014.
