European Robin - Rødstrupe
- Erithacus rubecula Rödhake - Rødhals
above picture was taken at 05:30 outside Flesland Airport, Bergen,
Norway on 06 January 2010 using a hand held DSLR with a 400mm telephoto
lens and the camera's built in flash unit.
temperature was -13C - small wonder this Robin was more or less
begging for food outside the main entrance in the middle of the night.
Most people walked past without noticing the starving bird at all -
until I started
pointing my telephoto lens at it.
Øygarden, January 2018
Robin are a common bird all year round in Øygarden, although
