The library even made them a student card
It’s a well-known fact that it is very hard for students to drag themselves to the library, but robins? Not so much.
Students working in the library have even been tweeting pictures of the robins who they’ve named their “study buddies”. The robins have been visiting so regularly they’ve been given names by students, with one bird being named “Stan.”
Regular visits by these new “study buddies” have caused a thread of tweets solely devoted to them, with the Uni of York Library even creating a “Student Card” for the little birds.
This comes as robins have been using the library since January, when they were first seen paying the library a visit. Since then, the robins have been spotted on the library floor, under desks and even on chairs.
The robins have become so used to being around students at the library, some people have noticed how tame they have become. There will be robins in Courtyard next.
Whether it’s because of the cold weather or because they just fancy a study session in Morrell, these robins have deffo visited the library more than most students this term. Who doesn’t want a robin “study buddy” keeping them company while trying to write an essay?
