  1. I love drawing birds. Like you said, there are so many, and they’re so interesting. All different shapes, sizes, and colors! Truly an artist’s dream. I look forward to seeing more of your birds…and I won’t let my cats get near them. 🙂

    • Lol. Thank you! I have a cat myself. She’s called Chrissy and she’s 16 years old. But I keep her indoors and take her outside in a harness when she wants a walk, fresh air and some grass to nibble on.

      I love birds. They helped me get through a very dark period I went through about 10 years ago. And there are so many types of birds just in the UK alone. And they are such interesting characters. I’m not really what you would call a “twitcher” – a bird “anorak”…marking out the birds I see, in what numbers, etc. But I love their variations and songs and I do try to teach myself about them.

      • Give Chrissy a hug for me. I had a dear old cat who lived to be about that age. He’s been gone for many years now, and I still miss him dearly. I’m much like you with the birds. Not a “twitcher” — I’ve always loved that term — but a very interested watcher. I have a couple bird books, and it’s fun to identify birds that come around. We had a little woodpecker stop by last night, but he flew away before I could get a good look at him. Another treat was discovering a pair of brown thrashers in the leaves one autumn. They make so much noise! I’ve learned to recognize several songs and call. It really is an enjoyable pastime, although I wouldn’t want to turn it into a full-fledged “hobby”.
