    Not that type, you dirty old dog!!

    This friendly little chap keeps hopping around me with not a care in the world and gets very close. Has very thin legs and is smaller than a Robin. He doesn't fly very far or high, preferring to hop around under bushes and on the patio etc.

    From looking online I'm wondering if it's a juvenile female Blackbird, or a Wren, or something else?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers, yeah that's what I was thinking. The juvenile birds looking completely different from the adults, plus the female blackbird looking completely different from the male are among the reasons why it's so difficult to ID them sometimes.

    Blackbirds are predominantly ground feeders and can be very inquisitive as juveniles like a Robin. The only other thing I think it could be is a baby thrush but they normally don't hang around when they spot humans

    The profile alone rules out other birds. I am well familiar with these and have a few in my garden at the mo. It won't be long before the front turn red but in the meantime it has to look like anything but a robin because they are fiercely territorial and will kill in such disputes. Youngsters don't have the savvy to survive such encounters.

    Taste it!
    If it tastes like chicken, it’s a chicken.

    I'm no bird expert but it's a juvenile robin, can't be anything else.

    Some might say it was a Peruvian Pelican.

    Others would swear it was a Cerulean Warbler.

    Another option that some would suggest is the Indian Ringneck Parakeet.

    Personally I can't see past it being a juvenile robin (can't be anything else really)

    So we're all in agreement then? It's not a Juvenile Robin because we think it's, it's a Juvenile Robin because it can't be anything else?

    It appears to be a young Robin prior to him teaming up with Batman.
