Last week I had a nice encounter with a European Robin. I had just finished my walk at
the Meerzicht islands when a robin landed right in front of my feet (or well, 1.5 meters away).
He watched me intently, pecked at something on the path, flew up and sat down in a low
shrubbery at about the same distance. He continued to look intently at me until he had
enough and disappeared into the forest to continue his interrupted song (loudly).
I think it's safe to say "he" because currently there's a lot of arguing going on concerning
territory and lady robins and I think this little fellow was very curious about the weird animal
wandering through his territory.
This week I had similar encounters with other robin-gentlemen.
