    Great shots!

    That color combination looks so pretty (yes, yes, I know I’m one of the few people who find grey to be a beautiful color).

    Thanks. :) I like grey, too. There are so many delicate shades, and grey features in a lot of birds. I think there’s a lot of colour drama in the males, with the black head, red chest, white eye rings, and delicate greys.

    The mildly deranged penguin, who is largely black and white, and thus, on average, both grey and gray, says the only useful Robin was Hood. Who was green.

    Greys can be very expressive, as in this robin.
    I’ve also noticed that the so-called ‘drab’ birds of more northern climes (that is, those lacking the reds, yellows and greens of tropical birds) aren’t any less colourful -- they just happen to shine in a different spectrum of colour. (I was inspired by the local european jays, which are a russet/red-grey colour, with black, white and blue accents -- very flashy and eye-catching, yet, when compared to tropical birds, more understated, but (in my opinion) no less colourful.)

    The grey, brown and black shades of the robin could be found on partially burned wood and ashes. I like the details of the feathers.

    When its comes to grey and birds the white wagtail (Motacilla alba) looks great with just black, white and grey.

    There’s also the magpie (žagata), though this one seems to be going a bit green-blue. :) They’re very stunning in real life, though, the black-and-white.
    Wagtails are just cute.
