My near daily visits to see the robins on the golf course have produced a question I was keen to answer. For several days in a row I was only ‘ticking’ the female and I began to wonder if the male was perhaps incubating on a nearby nest.
After checking some data I learned that the female alone does the incubating role in this species. Yesterday he showed up and I got some nice views while he checked me out.
Thanks ‘cock-robin’, I’ll be back tomorrow to say hello!
