Bird Guide: Robin

You can spot Robins all year round, but are a familiar sight in winter and at Christmas. It is hard to tell the difference between male and female birds as they look identical. Young are golden brown in colour with no red breast. Despite their cute appearance, they can be very territorial and aggressive to unwanted intruders. They love eating insects, fruit and seeds.
