Blackpoll Warblers

During the shutdown I have not been birding like normal, other than off my back deck. However, the back wild space has delivered in spades – actually, in what we birders call “lifers” (the first time you spot a species.)

We had a couple of Blackpoll Warblers go through last week, giving a brief, yet very delightful glimpse as they paused on their travels from S. Am. to Canada.

Quick Sketches

On my lunch hour and of an evening I do quick sketches – I did a quick splash of watercolor on the hummingbird. I think I just may do more of those practice pieces!
