"First Flight"

American Robin (juvenile)

Juvenile American Robin.

This time of year, people often find these little guys thinking they fell out of the nest. The fact is, it is normal for baby robins to leave the nest before they have mastered flight.

In this little doodle I tried to capture the awkward landing abilities of a juvenile by sketching some plants by the side of my house (note the siding in the background).
