baby robins in their nest
These little guys are in their nest outside of my living room window. We have been documenting their growth each and everyday. I am sure it won't be long and they will be ready to fly. I have always wanted to paint birds, but somehow I don't think I can do them justice. I will try even if I interpret them my own way. Isn't that the idea of drawing and painting. Does everything have to be true to life. I don't think so. Baby robins cannot fly for the first few days after they jump from the nest. Their parents lead them to low shrubs and trees and they gradually learn to climb and jump. Within a day or two their wings grow stronger and they begin to take short flights. As always, keep the camera nearby!
