Scarlet and Flame - Original Etching
I grew up in Northern Ireland. Our robin was a lovely little brown bird with an orangey red breast who father christmas sent to spy on us to make sure we were good. Then I moved to Australia and WOW! The robins here are a shock to the eyes, in a good way.
Here I have brought two of the reds together in a two plate etching. The Scarlet Robin and the Flame Robin. You can tell them apart, if they stay still long enough, by the size of the red patch (covers more of the body in the flame robin and starts just under the beak, whereas the scarlet's starts lower down on the breast.) Also the scarlet robin has a larger blob of white on his forehead. Of course this is if you are seeing the males. If you spot females I cannot help you here.
