Courtship feeding

We had a robin's nest last year in the ivy that covers the garage. I am pretty sure we might have another this year as I've noticed them flying in and out the last few days. Today I saw something I've never seen before - a robin feeding another. This was not fledgling feeding - both had red breasts so I am pretty sure it's courtship feeding. The male will feed the female to woo her and a few days before she lays eggs right through incubation. Watch this space!
