    I lived five of the last ten years in the north of England and five in the
    mountains of Tennessee in the U.S.  There is a big difference between the
    English and American robins.  The English bird is small, brown, and
    frequently shown perched in the snow on Christmas cards.  The American bird
    is larger, darker colored (coloured), and a sign of spring.  You can bet the
    entire film crew was American.  (Or, maybe she would be home for Christmas.)
