Puzzle of Robin Hiding in Christmas Trees Confuses the Internet


It’s no secret that we love a good puzzle or brain teaser around here. But when it’s holiday-themed, that makes the game even more fun.

This super-festive brainteaser was thought up by the creative folks over at Bloom & Wild, a UK-based florist company. It involves finding a cartoon robin in the midst of countless cartoon Christmas trees — and it’s a lot harder than it sounds. According to the creators, it takes most people more than two minutes to find the bird among the boughs.

Phew! If your eyes are tired from darting from side to side and up and down trying to find this mysterious bird, you’re not alone. It took us quite a while to find this adorable fella, too.

Still having trouble? The answer is below.

Wow! Bloom & Wild really got us with this one. We thought the coffee puzzle and the dog optical illusion mystery were both tricky, but this one may be the most challenging yet. There’s nothing quite like giving your brain a good workout, especially when the holidays are involved.

As we all know, robins are often synonymous with Christmas in folklore. With their gorgeous red feathers often coated in snow in countless illustrations and depictions, it’s no question that these beautiful birds are symbolic figures of the holiday season. Whether you were able to solve the puzzle to find one of them in less than two minutes or not, we can all appreciate the sentimentality behind the riddle.

“Small but powerful, the robin is a symbol of kindness and love and we honor them with our Christmas brain teaser,” Bloom & Wild said on their website.
