Day 17: SWOLLEN. American Robin. By fluffing up their feathers during the winter season, they can provide protection against the harsh cold. The down feathers trap their air and insulate the bird’s internal organs to a whopping 104 degrees Fahrenheit. ❄️ #inktober2018 @inktober #AmericanRobin
Inktober Day 13: GUARDED
When I was a kid a Robin made a nest in a wreath outside our back door. Any time we ever went outside she would dive bomb our heads and peck at us vigorously. My mom had a big sun hat that she kept by the door for us to put on before stepping out in an effort to help protect our heads, but to no avail the mother robin did all she could to guard her nest
These little robins will be guarding your prints and keeping that steely robin’s eye on the mail person delivering it
Robins always appear to be so proud... American Robin (Turdus migratorius)

Next up for day 13 of #burntoctober
is my #hometown
. There's really not much to say about #Torrington
, except that it's home. In this design you can see subtle county lines, the #connecticut
state flag, bird #americanrobin
, and state flower #mountainlaurel
. The red T is where Torrington is on the map. Theres a giant metal T outside my high school.
It's not much but I'm content. Once I get rid of those pesky pencil lines, I'll give it to my mom, the city clerk, to keep in her office .....or regift if she wants to! 😜😅 @woodburncorner @walnuthollow
A beautiful American Robin from this past spring at our cabin. They are now back eating the dried saskatoons in the bushes and sonit kind of feels like spring hearing their song! Glad they are back.

Robins are resident in Washington state (as in most areas of the lower 48) year round, but apparently we don’t know if our winter robins are the same individuals as our summer robins. It seems most likely that some are and some are not. Many robins summer, and thus breed, in Canada and Alaska then retreat from the cold and deep snow of winter. Without the responsibilities of mating and raising their young robins form large flocks in winter, reaping the fruits of various trees and shrubs as they move across the landscape.

🦆🦉I’m EXTREMELY excited to announce that I’m going to work for @audubonsociety
as Brand Marketing Partnerships Manager! When I was seven years old I was given my first Audubon guidebook and a pair of binoculars and introduced to the amazing world of birds. I have loved them ever since. @audubonsociety
works to ensure the protection and conservation of our birds and the habitats on which they depend to survive. Today more than ever, our birds are facing massive threats of extinction as climate change wreaks havoc on their migration patterns and humans continue to destroy their habitats. For so many city dwellers, birds are our first and often only connection to wildlife. So please check Audubon out, give them a follow @audubonsociety
, consider becoming a supporting member, and get ready to see even more bird posts from me for the foreseeable future. And if you work for a company seeking to align with conservation, hit me up!🦆🦅🦉

Detail, work in progress. Pun intended
The American Robin is an early morning songbird. They are frequently seen digging and pulling on earthworms on lawns. They are known for their orange breast, cheerful song, and early return at the end of winter in the north of the continent. Although it is a common bird in towns and cities, the American Robin, feels at home in wilder areas, such as the forests in the mountains and wilderness areas in Alaska.

El Mirlo Primavera es un ave madrugadora por excelencia; se les ve con frecuencia en el césped de los patios, donde escarban y jalan lombrices de la tierra. El Mirlo Primavera es un ave conocida por su pecho anaranjado, canto alegre, y regreso temprano al término del invierno el el norte del continente. Pese a que es un ave común en pueblos y ciudades, El Mirlo Primavera, se siente a sus anchas en áreas más silvestres, tales como los bosques en las montañas y áreas silvestres en Alaska.
