In the UK, the Robin has become synonymous with Christmas, though can be found year round in English gardens and is often known as the gardener's friend. The Robin of British Isles (Erithacus rubecula melophilus). The distinctive orange breast of both sexes contributed to the European Robins original name of redbreast (orange as the name of a colour was unknown in English until the sixteenth century, by which time the fruit of that name had been introduced). Now that's something new that I learnt today.
