Nature Sketchbook: Tufted Titmouse

This is a sketch of a Titmouse using Julie G.'s photo as a reference. Thank you, Julie, for a wonderful capture. My plan for the sketchbook is to make a sketch of all the birds that visit our backyard. The sketch is colored with Prismacolor Watercolor pencils.

It's been a little chilly so we've been keeping the suet feeder full. Good thing, because I was able to snap a pic of this cute little Downy today.

I got such a kick out of this Robin's expression :-)
He's well balanced...chips on both shoulders.

Pretty, fluffy little House Finch. So happy they've arrived :-)

I thought this was a sweet little fat one.
He's probably just fluffed up against the cold.

How do you like this super yellow fluff ~ ball :-))
He was waiting for a spot at the feeder below.

Finchey Friday

The finch feeder was totally full today! The cooler weather probably had a hand in a BIG husband filled up the Thistle feeder :-))
We still have Harris's Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos feeding from the feeders on the deck. I know that I'll be saying farewell soon until next Winter to these favorites.
Happy Friday all!!
