 Robert Bateman Signature 

Robins at the Nest - Turdus migratorius - Robert Bateman

"The American robin is one of the most widespread birds in North America. I have seen them
in the South and at the Arctic tree line, but most people think of them as “right around home”
birds.  In fact, they have adapted so well to human settlement that they are probably more
abundant around towns, villages and farms than they are in the wilderness. They will actually
build their nests on the dwellings of human beings. The nest is made of mud and grasses
in an almost perfect bowl shape.

Here I have shown a female at the nest. She is probably just poked a worm down the throat
of one of the young, and they are hoping for more. They instinctively reach up and beg from
any moving object above them, including a human hand. Their mouths are brightly colored
to attract the mother's attention.

The interesting artistic problem in this painting was to have the nest in the shade,
as they usually are, but lit from below with the glow of the sunny day
on the floor of the stable."
