Robin red breast:  I encountered my first English robin in the Kensington Palace gardens.  It was raining but he was atop a fence and gaily singing to me.  I chirp and he would chirp back.  Enchanting wee things - so much smaller than American robins, which I also adore.

I love to hear a robin singing--it often means that spring has arrived or that a good needed rain is on its way.

European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), most commonly known in Anglophone Europe simply as the Robin, is a small insectivorous passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family (Turdidae), but is now considered to be a chat.
