Yesterday I went out to see the robins,  I noted two males first time  the second has been there one appears to be a  young one, (did  get a bad shot of the newbie attached )  different markings etc

My query is wondering if he will stay and pair up with the young female  or will the older male push him / them away as he has for the last 12mths been real bossy with all types of birds even his daughter ( for months )  and is the newbie a young bird

Yesterday he was chasing this new male which is nothing out of the norm for him he was doing the same with the flames and scarlets yesterday as well as last season

Even poor willy wagtail gets it off him

The original  male can be seen here

any  knowledge appreciated
