2023—Robin Red Breast

American Robins are among our most familiar songbirds, and, living year-round in every state in the Union, they are very common to see. As common as they are, however, I didn’t expect to see, let alone photograph, an American Robin in Yellowstone National Park. So, when on our last day in Yellowstone National Park while we were photographing a small herd of Bison moving through the sage with their newborns, a Robin stopped briefly on a lichen covered boulder, I went click. Its colorful breast drew my attention away from the huge beasts rumbling through the sage behind it and I took its portrait as it posed.
