So, our Brit is revealed as something of a birder. The robin is not native to these parts (Southern California) but one spring three or four decades ago he turned up here in great numbers, apparently having temporarily lost his sense of direction. He then disappeared and, as far as I know, hasn't been seen here since. I knew him well as a boy in Indiana, but that was a long time ago. My Guide to Birds (Western Region) confirms that he is an alien here and, incidentally, it notes that he hops. |
