Happy New Year! This year I am challenging myself to create a sketchbook journal with drawings of birds that I am seeing in my area. I have enjoyed bird watching for forty years and look forward to having birds as my sketching and drawing inspiration. Here are a couple of images that I have created to get started. The collage above has an Eastern Screech-Owl and the two birds below are the White-Breasted Nuthatch and the Greater Pewee.
