This year, the robin has been elected bird of the year by the German population! The election, which revealed the most sympathetic candidate, also brings attention to the protection of many bird species and garden diversity. The curious and fearless robin is also well known and loved in many other European countries. This bird therefore deserves a place in the spotlight. Respond to this tribute with our treats and safe shelters and surprise the real fans with related robin "merchandise".
Profile of the Robin
Did you know that...
…the female robins make two nests a year?
The breeding season therefore lasts from mid-April until August. The robin often builds its nest near low bushes or in a hidden niche, and sometimes even creates a small roof over its nest. Our robin nesting boxes are built to this standard and are therefore all the more inviting. By the way, our robin nesting box in stylish gift box is also ideal to give as a gift and a nice idea to have in store for the holidays!
…robins bathe passionately every day?
They usually do this in the evening. Even in winter. Installing a bird bath turns the garden into a true wellness centre for birds.
…a robin can still detect a mealworm on the ground at a distance of eight metres?
Robins are real groundhoppers and like to eat from the ground, a feeding table or a feed pendant. They also like to snack on a berry. The dried berry is a tasty and healthy snack and can be fed all year round, just like dried insects. So you can sell these treats all year round.
..you can often get very close to a robin?
Robins often actively search for 'big animals' because they can benefit from another bird's search for insects, or food that is released while working in the garden. So it is possible that you are being spied on while raking leaves or shovelling snow.
...we'll be releasing a Robin gift set soon?
