There have been several robin sightings in our backyard, a sure sign of spring.
Momma bird is busy,busy,busy these days….
Ever wonder why they are called redbreast and not, say orangebreast….well, wonder no more:
“The distinctive orange breast of both sexes contributed to the European Robin’s original name of redbreast (orange as the name of a colour was unknown in English until the sixteenth century, by which time the fruit of that name had been introduced). In the fifteenth century, when it became popular to give human names to familiar species, the bird came to be known as Robin redbreast, which was eventually shortened to Robin”. via wikipedia.
So dear bloggy friends, lay awake pondering no more. You’re welcome 🙂
