A Cute little bird visits our garden for the first time

Yesterday we had a very sweet little thing appear at the bird feeding area – a tiny ball of fluffy brown feathers.

P1010852I didn’t know what kind of bird he was – from his innocent and wide-eyed behavior I guessed he was a baby not long out of the nest (I saw him go up to a cat to see what it was… and luckily lived to tell the tale). But there was something about the way he held himself, puffing his little chest out proudly, that reminded me of a robin.

P1010857I hope we see many more of these plucky little birds in the months to come 🙂
