Wow! You’ve been busy. These are beautiful, guess I need to visit more often.
I love the chestnut sided warbler. In May I went to Magee Marsh in Ohio to bird Warblers. It was fanatastic and I saw and photographed many, many warblers. The chestnut sided was very accommodating. Other favorites were the Black & White, Blackburnian, Cape May to name a few!
Birding and sketching in New England was wonderful- and birding in Ohio is great, too- back here in OK we’re lucky to get a few of those but we make up for it with scissortailed flycatchers and painted buntings.
Hi. I love your drawings. The Ruddy Turnstone is a favorite bird of mine. I like the woodchuck who takes up two pages!!! Jane
