I have enjoyed seeing a few of these in the park throughout the summer. They are so tiny and quick, they can be easy to miss.

These two commissioned pieces were done in the summer, to be a gift for someone who loves his backyard birds.
This is another bird you can find in abundance at our nearby pond. You’ll know if you happen to wander near a nest by the speed and proximity of their swooping.
I recently saw a nuthatch for the first time, so I’ve been wanting to paint it. I found out that it is the only bird that can walk straight down a tree trunk. It hides seeds in the trunk to eat later.
