These delightful little birds have a lovely melodious voice that can be heard all year round; there cheerful song is a delight to hear and it can also actually be a warning to other birds that come too close. Despite their cute appearance they are very territorial and are very quick to drive away intruders, they will defend their territories to the death, and so in the nursery rhyme "Who killed Cock Robin?", another Robin rather than a sparrow would be more likely:
“Who killed Cock Robin?
I said the Sparrow,
With my bow and arrow,
And I killed Cock Robin”.
Robins are known to be one of the UK’s favorite birds and can be spotted in woodlands, hedgerows, parks and gardens, and feed mainly on insects and worms. Mealworms are a firm favourite and the robin being one of the tamest wild birds can be trained to take food from an out- stretched hand.
The Robins will also love our special soft-food Fat Robin full of nutritious ingredients, that are blended together with high-energy suet pellets and ever-popular Sunflower Hearts plus vegetable oils and raisins. This mix can be spread on the ground or placed on the bird table and will be taken eagerly.
Feeding this bird food will soon prove that a Robin isn't just for Christmas!
