ROBIN REDBREAST by GeaAusten
ROBIN REDBREAST
from my garden, watercolour pencils..Albrecht Durer, and Aquarelle paper

<li>The European robin is perhaps the best known of all British birds.  It is a common visitor to gardens and once attracted to food put out on a bird table, it will return to it all winter through.<li>Every continent has its own robins, but only the Japanese and Ryukyu robins are closely related.<li>Features of the robin include its distinctive red breast and face, grey under parts, brown head, wings and tail.  Their flight is distinguishable by rapid wing beats for short, fast flight. <li>The best way to see a robin in your garden is to dig.  Within minutes one may perch on a fence or branch nearby waiting to inspect the newly-turned soil for earthworms.<li>The robin has a distinctive and beautiful sounding call.  It will sing to proclaim territory and attract a mate and usually sings all year round, although it is quieter in late summer when it moults.<li>Nearly three quarters of robins in Britain die before they are one year old, either caught by predators or unable to fend for themselves.  Ten per cent of older robins die defending their territory.<li>Robins are fiercely territorial over food supply.  Not more than one robin will occupy a small garden, unless it is his mate.  When their food source becomes scarce in winter they will eat just about anything put out for them on a bird table, especially fatty foods such as bacon rind and cheese.<li>In winter, the robin puffs up its plumage to insulate its body against cold winds.<li>When the male robin has found a mate, he will strengthen their bond by bringing the female food, such as worms and caterpillars, which she begs for noisily while quivering her wings and is often mistaken by the observer to be the mother feeding the young.<li>Once the female has laid her eggs, she stays in the nest for up to two weeks, crouching low over them, well concealed with only her brown back visible.  The male brings her food, sometimes as often as three times in an hour.<li>Both parents take responsibility when feeding and looking after their chicks until they are two weeks old when they can fly and become fully independent. They pair up for the breeding season (April to June) only.<li>Birds which raise an early brood are more likely to have a second or third brood in the same year.  The female will sit on the clutch of 5-7 eggs while the male continues to feed and look after the year’s first fledglings.<li>Did you know that postmen used to be called robins because of their red tunics and the reason the robin is associated with Christmas cards is because these were delivered by the red-coated postmen ‘robins’?  <li>The British affection for the robin, where-by they are known to be friendly and sociable birds with gardeners’ is not shared elsewhere in Europe, where they are shot for food or for sport.  "

I REMEMBER AUTUMN 2 by GeaAusten
I REMEMBER AUTUMN 2
.....PENCIL AND SCHMINKE WATERCOLOUR......leaves on the ground outside ................the whole version .....

To Autumn

by John Keats

 

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness!   Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;Conspiring with him how to load and bless   With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;To bend with apples the mossed cottage trees,   And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;      To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shellsWith a sweet kernel; to set budding more,   And still more, later flowers for the bees,   Until they think warm days will never cease,      For Summer has o'erbrimmed their clammy cells.

Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?   Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may findThee sitting careless on a granary floor,   Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind,Or on a half-reaped furrow sound asleep,   Drowsed with the fume of poppies, while thy hook      Spares the next swath and all its twinèd flowers;And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep   Steady thy laden head across a brook;   Or by a cider-press, with patient look,      Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours.

Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?   Think not of them, thou hast thy music too, -While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,   And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn   Among the river sallows, borne aloft      Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;   Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft   The redbreast whistles from a garden-croft;      And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.
