In English folklore the robin is sometimes associated with both good and bad luck, and both life and death. A robin pecking at your windows or entering your house is said to bring death to the owner, and as far back as the 16th century it was said that if a robin found the body of a dead person it would cover the body with moss, leaves and flowers.


"Hurt a robin or a wran,
Never prosper, boy or man".


The above rhyme points to the belief that to hurt or injure a robin will surely bring the person much bad luck. Sources speak of cows giving bloody milk and buildings burning down all brought on by the bad luck associated with robins.
