75 Day Sketch Challenge - Day 37

This is a sketch of a bird my husband came across while 4-wheeling the trails behind the property.  This bird sits crouched on the ground trying to camouflage itself against the woodland debris.  While hubby was riding, he almost ran over the bird as it just sat there.  Unlike other birds that would fly off or at least take off running.

These guys like sticking their long bills into the ground for invertebrates.   I love the large eyes.  To me gives the bird a soft sweet or innocent like characteristic.
