One of my favourite songs related to chickens-here is a sweet version of it I found on youtube related to Farm Africa which looks like a great organisation.
The page was prepared already with the ink and heart stencil, and all that time ago I left the word Robin uncovered, which became suitable now. That has happened quite a lot with this journal-that words I chose to leave uncovered ages ago when I gessoed it, suited what was happening at the time. Here is the Robin I am referring to. Ages ago when it was nesting time, a little Robin would defensively chirp every day on the fence. I went away for a weekend and when I came back he was not there anymore, and I was afraid that one of the cats had got him. About two weeks ago he came back. Obviously I don't know if it is the same one, but he is doing exactly the same thing, and as they are territorial I feel like it might be. He has a damaged looking tail and does look a bit the worse for wear, which also makes me think he is the same one. He arrives on the fence every day but usually when I have got my camera he has gone. Today I was quick enough!
