A redwing (Turdus iliacus) is a kind of thrush. They migrate to the UK in vast numbers every winter to escape the harsh conditions in Scandinavia where they breed. This is one I saw near my home feasting on hawthorn berries. In really cold weather they often come into towns and villages to eat the berries on ornamental bushes in parks and gardens.
This painting was a gift to my flame-haired nephew, whose totem animal is a red fox, and is shown here for your viewing pleasure.
