Red Masked Robin

137
Okay, so that’s not really his name…but seriously, how cute is he??
I found this little guy in my backyard the other day. He was so striking I had to get a closer look. Lucky for me, he looked like a baby that was trying to figure out how to fly. He was just hopping around. So he waited for me while I ran to get my camera! After a few minutes he figured it out and found his way up! Though let’s just say he could use a little more practice!
I loved his little mask! I thought of you, Danielle, as I was watching him! Ever seen him before?

I remember this one because it's originally from South Africa and was introduced in Brazil.

They're so cute. I usually see them in groups.

Awh! We don't have those guys here, but they are sure cute (and pudgy!)
