some very interesting lore about robin redbreast: Medieval Europe lore often
depicted the robin attending the Christ child, an emblem of the Passion to
come. At the fateful hour, the tiny robin flew to Jesus’ Crown of Thorns,
striving bravely to pluck the thorns away with his beak. Unfortunately, the
bird only tore his own breast on the thorns. Since then it was thought that robins
wore red feathers on their chests as a badge of honor.
Welcome to spring, robin redbreast…
