I will end the drawing day with one last lesson on another bird. The robin is one of those birds that carry a reputation for being early birds. This tutorial is going to show you “how to draw a robin step by step”. The robin is one of the most common birds that bird watchers love studying. The bird that I am drawing is the American robin. These birds can be found all across the continent either sitting, walking, digging, or singing, on the lawns, treetops, fields, parks, golf course, and even mountains of any city or state. The robin is also a bird that doesn’t fly aways for the winter. Instead, these birds spend the entire winter in their homemade nests. They can lay up to three sets of eggs a year. Unfortunately, only forty percent of their eggs actually hatch into baby robins. On top of that, only twenty five percent of that forty percent, make it through the winter. The average lifespan of a robin is about fourteen years which is pretty cool if they don’t get killed accidentally or purposely. Other than worms, the robin bird has a diet that consists of fruit during the fall and winter months which includes a variety of edible berries. Remember when I said that the robin sits in it’s nest through the winter months? Well during the colds days of winter, they move up into the moist part of the woods where there is plenty of trees and shrubbery, as well as berries. The color of a robin is pretty. They have grayish brown colored feathers from head to back, and they have a warm orange colored chest from neck to thigh. I think you guys will enjoy this lesson that shows you “how to draw a robin”. That is all I have for you guys today, I will be back another day with more drawing fun. Peace out people and have an awesome drawing day.
