April 23 is the birthday of William Shakespeare. Mr. Shakespeare was pretty well acquainted with—among one or two other things—birds. More than forty strut, twitter, shriek, sing, and soar through his works. But the bird he knew as a Robin Redbreast is not the bird we call a "robin" in the United States.
