Here's another render I did while working with human/bird poses. I like this one... it's a little Maxfield Parrish-like in composition.

Hmmm... that can I tell you about the bird featured in the image, the American Robin.

Robins roost communally in the winter and can number in the hundred of thousands. In the summer, females sleep on the nests and males congregate in roosts. As young robins become independent, they join the males in the roost. Female adults go to the roosts only after they have finished nesting.

While earthworms are important part of the Robin's diet during the breeding season, but fruit is the main diet during winter. Robins eat earthworms early in the day and more fruit later in the day.

While the Robin can have up to three successful broods in one year, only 40 percent of nests successfully produce young. Only 25 percent of those fledged will survive to November. From that point on, about half of the robins alive in any year will make it to the next. Robin can live to be 14 years old.

While pesticides and fertilizers in lawn can be deadly to Robins so can be a heat wave on berries. Many a berry-eating bird has died from getting drunk on fermented berries.

Robins are considered the harbingers of spring, however they rarely show up until late spring

Rendered in Poser 2012 without Postwork. Models: v4 with "Darcy" texture, "Wild Orchid" hair and "Liberte" dress and of course the American Robin form Songbird ReMix

Very sweet pic. We have a Cape robin which we feed mealy-worms in the winter and he becomes very tame.
