Robin

What do they look like? 

Possibly Ireland's most recognizable bird, the robin has a bright orange-red breast and facial area that make it unmistakable. Its upper-parts are greyish brown while its belly and lower breast are greyish white.

What do they eat?

Robins will eat insects and some fruits, including apples. They will be a frequent visitor to your bird table and will happily dine on seeds, peanuts and suet treats.

Where do they nest?

Robins nests are usually well-concealed in a bank, ivy or in a tree or wall cavity. They will happily use open-fronted nestboxes and will sometimes nest in usual places such as inside your garden shed.
