British Robin

The British Robin (Erithacus rubecula) is a common garden bird in Britain, but is a novelty here in India. A very small population of Female Robins migrate to Europe from Britain during Winter and Robins from Russia migrate to Britain to escape from the harsh Russian winter.
I found the British birds to be less shy and more approachable by humans than their Indian counterparts. The birds are used to humans and don't find unsafe near them. I may be wrong but the only reason I could conclude was may be because of our habit of shooing birds that come to peck the food we eat or that come on the fields.
