I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

A robin in Luss.

Not a very clear picture, but the only one I managed to get of the only robin I saw.

European robins aren't even close relatives to the American robin, but the red-bellied thrushes we call robins supposedly reminded early settlers of this bird.

Robins are probably the first bird I ever learned to identify, and they're one of the most common birds I see in Central Park, so it's odd to have the word suddenly mean a completely different animal.
