One of our regular winged visitors

One of our favorite past times is sitting out on the front porch and watching the various birds visit our feeders.  Those that visit regularly are black capped chickadees, sparrows, tufted titmouse, cardinals, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, morning doves, purple finches as well as yellow American finches.  Occasionally a Jay will come around but seldom intrigued by the offerings at the feeders.

Inspired by the outside activity, I grabbed my book Watercolor Basics Drawing and Painting Birds by Shirley Porter (great book) and this is my take on one of the pencil sketches seen in the book which was an actual warbler but I instead worked it as a sparrow.
