My gardening companion........................................................................ Robin

 I have been tidying up the garden today... my little Robin has been following me around all morning.

He waits until I have disturbed the soil weeding... as I move on he hops down to feed.
Makes me smile every time.

Your robins are different looking from ours,but they have similar habits. I have a pair in my garden following me around, too.

Our North American robins aren't nearly as pretty as this little guy, but we love them anyway. A sure sign that Spring is on its way here. Our grass is beginning to green up a bit, too.
I've seen robins follow gardeners in Canada, as well. They seem to think the soil is being turned over just for them to find worms.

He really is the sweetest Drew. How long has this particular Robin been a regular? I had blackbirds and robins at our mountain house that taught their offspring that it was safe to feed even if the cats were out as ong as I was there. I was a lovely relationship.

Great shot of the Robin and I love that it was following your around to get a meal after you worked the soil, very clever bird.
