Robins, Robin, Robins
In the previous post, there's an image of a painting that was the first one I did for this particular job, but decided to go with this one instead. Both paintings are of an American Robin - Turdus migratorius. T. Migratorius belongs to Turdidae family, which also includes Wood and Hermit thrushes.
This fellow, however, is a European Robin Erithacus rubecula. European Robins are not related to T. migratorius, and belong to an entirely different family: Muscicapidae. Europeans settlers in N. America laid eyes on T. migratorius, and perhaps getting a pang of homesickness for their similarly red-breasted feathered friends at home, bestowed upon it the name of robin.
Little collage painting of Erithacus rubecula is in the store.
