Robins in a tree

A lone Robin perches on the roof of my garage, seemingly standing guard for the birds in the tree* across the alley. Picture taken at 7:03 PM on Wednesday, March 21 2007 through the kitchen window of my new house. I had hoped to get a follow-up Moon-and-Venus picture to compare to the one I took Tuesday night, but the sky was thick with clouds that looked like whipped cream on the verge of forming soft peaks.

*I have no idea what kind of tree. I'n inclined to say Cypress, but I don't know. I'm noticing differences in branch structure in different trees - branches are definitely something I need to work on in my paintings. Maybe I should study tree structures to be able to tell the difference based on their branches.
