The Audacity of the Robin

Today while I was planting some Angelina sedum and Coreopsis 'Zagreb' I brought home from yesterday's plant swap, a robin approached. I had just dug up one of the small terraces and was adding some of the composted manure from Professor Dirt's truck. I stopped to watch the robin, who was being very bold, hopping to within 3 feet of me. As I stood still, he hopped even closer. Two feet, then one. I could have reached out and touched him. Then he hopped into the small terrace, right next to my shovel, pulled out a worm, and hopped away. I couldn't believe it That was a brave, stupid, or very hungry robin!
