Robin and Fiskars ax is one of my favorite bird photos. You may think why! There are two things in the picture that I love: delightful bird and worldwide famous Finnish brand.
Robin (Erithacus rubecula, punarinta)
Robin is such a hilarious bird. Its appearance is round and its chest is beautifully rusty. Robin arrives in Finland beginning of April and usually it can be found somewhere in a shrub or standing in an ax!
I have photographed these photos in April 2019 at the time when we were building our cottage in Lohja. Robin was watching our firewood chopping and while I had some brake he decided to try my ax too. Luckily I had my camera in the car and robin had time for a pose.
He returned this spring and was singing very loudly in the forest until midsummer. I have seen him around our yard quite often this summer and I hope he will return also next year.
If you are interested to listen its sing, here is a link to the page where you can hear it: LINK. If you are interested in Fiskars you can read more about it in my previous post My favorite village, Fiskars.
