Month: May 2009
We had this odd bird stop by our feeders a few weeks ago. He was the size and shape of a blackbird, but with an orange-yellow hood and white eyes on his wings where the red would be on a red-wing blackbird. We took tons of photos and dug out the bird books. It turns out he was a yellow headed blackbird passing through on his way north. I finally got around to doing his drawing in my journal for todays EDinM entry.Read More
Day 2 for Every Day in May. I saw this sweet mourning dove perched on one of my deck posts and decided to sketch it for today's entry. As soon as I grabbed a notebook and pencil and started to draw it flew off! I finished from memory, something I definitely need practice at. When the kiddos saw this sketch and I told them that it was for EDinM, the first words out of their mouths were "What, no chibis?" Maybe there will be manga later in the month, but for now I'm just experimenting and playing.Read More
