Blackbird, Fly!

I found a fledgling, while I was taking photos of butterflies in a cemetery. It looked like a common blackbird juvenile (*Anyone, idea?). That little bird banged badly against a tree and a wall of a little chapel. Oh, no! ​I put it on a tombstone. Pity..., but it was really cute. I saw another, probably its sibling that could fly better than this. I left the babybird there.
One day after, I saw the fledgling sitting on a bench on a paved way along the cemetery nearly at noon. "What are you doing here?" I cried out! I assumed it did not have food. While I was wondering a rescue or not, it flew away in a very clumsy way and anyhow clang to a tree trunk. Noisy miners began to attack that fledgling. Oh, no. When the juvenile chirped to call its mum, others attacked it again. It could not cry for help. Pity. I wondered where its mum was. Or Mum kept distance and wanted to make her children live on themselves. 
After quick lunch, I went there. The blackbird was found in nowhere. I looked for it for three times. I did not find it run over a road, in near trees or anywhere. I hope it is alive and safe and will survive in somewhere.  
When I did research about baby blackbirds on net, I found rescue was not good. Juvenile blackbirds leave nests before they can fly well, but rescue is inappropriate. Thank goodness, I'm so relieved. 
The fledgling reminded me of the song, "Blackbird," by the Beatles. See its very short tail! Oh, young and cute. Also, I think of a lovely blogger friend, Rhonda who loves birds. I heartily hope migraines will be gone asap. Rhonda, I hope these watercolour paintings will give you a coffee break.  
Regarding watercolour painting, I enjoyed creating the colour of feathers and a fluffy texture. Birds and any creatures are fun to draw and beautiful. I feel like taking pictures of them and keep enjoying watercolour, although I'm hopeless of taking photos! Below is the cemetery where I explore bushes.  
Btw, my picture book illustration is having a steady onward march of progress. It's a great joy. 
Friends, Happy Painting! I hope life treats you kind, especially, anyone with health issues.

  1. Sadami, your little fluffy friend is so cute. He was lucky to have you looking out for his safety. It was wise to do some research on his species before attempting to rescue him too. I love your sketch. Wishing you a beautiful day.

    1. Thank you, Judy! Yes, let us hope it is fine and will fly strong in a sky. It was interesting to draw a young bird in a studio. I've learned how to project personality onto a subject. Cheers, Sadami

  4. Sadami, nos acabas de contar una historia muy bonita sobre estos pájaros. Casi, un cuento! Esos pajaritos son hermosos y tú, la has pintado muy bien. Muy tierno!
    Seguramente se salvó, porque la naturaleza ya está preparada para esos momentos difíciles, como lo está para los incapacitados.
    Gracias. Un abrazo.

    1. Oh, gracias, dulce Joshemari. Era precioso para dibujar un pájaro joven basado en las fotos en un estudio. He aprendido cómo la personalidad proyectar sobre un tema. Estoy seguro de que, también, podrá disfrutar de las criaturas en la naturaleza. Los mejores deseos, Sadami

      Oh, thank you, sweet Joshemari. It was lovely to draw a young bird based on photos in a studio. I've learned how to project personality onto a subject. I'm sure you, too, will enjoy any creatures in nature. Best wishes, Sadami

      Sadami, just told us a beautiful story about these birds. Almost a story! These birds are beautiful and you, you've painted very well. Very tender!
      Surely it was saved, because nature is already prepared for these difficult times, as it is for the disabled.
      Thank you. A hug.

  5. I love these, especially the birds and the color of the buildings = so pretty! Thank you for your good wishes. I am still having migraines and try to just deal with it without taking meds for the rest of my life to stop them. I need to meet a really good doctor who looks at meidcal problems like mysteries to solve but until then...
