European Robin
A rather dishevelled Robin. Perhaps finding caterpillars for hungry mouths didn't leave enough time for grooming.

Thank you all for your kind comments on my pictures, and good birding.

Habitat
Woodland of various kinds, usually deciduous or mixed but purely coniferous in some areas. Found in lower branches of trees and in bushes and shrubs, usually feeding on the ground. Common in parks and gardens, especially in Britain, also hedgerows and road verges but avoids most open spaces, except maybe on migration. May enter buildings in very harsh weather (Opus)
