a flock of robins

These are my commissioned bird portraits from @pepperandpals! They looked good when she posted her previews of them before she mailed them off to me, but seeing them in person… Wow! They look awesome! I got them as a Christmas gift for my Mom and I know she will absolutely love them! Now to find the perfect birdie frames to put them in! ^_^

If she has any more commission slots open, I certainly recommend you check her out!


Robin (Duke Thomas),  We Are Robin (2015)  //   DC Comics

“Instead of just one Robin, DC Comics is unleashing a whole flock of them on Gotham City this summer.

What used to be the mantle of Batman’s teenage sidekick is now worn by many diverse youngsters clad in the familiar “R” in We Are Robin, a new series debuting June 24 from writer Lee Bermejo (Batman: Noel) and artists Rob Haynes and Khary Randolph.

Part of a large crop of new comic books debuting after the Convergence event series, We Are Robin focuses on Duke Thomas, an African-American kid who’s played an important role recently in the main Batman series, as he’s indoctrinated into this new Robin movement to protect and serve Gotham.” (X)

Baby Robin

This fledgling was found on a doorstep, cold and lethargic. The vet team warmed it up and gave it some fluids and it has now perked up a lot! At this age, baby robins are still being fed by their parents so we are feeding it every two hours.

This baby adds to our ever growing ‘flock’ of orphan baby thrushes, sparrows, robins, pigeons, doves and blackbirds!
