Bird color and robins

I'd like to note, as someone in a small town with a robin's nest perched on top of my flood lights (basically between), that the babies "I have" aren't all red, like the above artwork. One has a really big dark colored head (he must be the greediest) and black and white stripes on his throat. My cat is both lying in the sun and watching these birds intently. I think, that with the robins' deep nest that there is little prospect of them falling out. But nature is not just in the country or on another continent (like Australia).
