Day 8 - "Ms. Redbird"

"Ms. Redbird" 7"x5" watercolor
The Cardinal is the state bird of my home state, North Carolina, so I always enjoy seeing them come to visit, it reminds me of home.  This one was hanging out at the feeder last weekend and was so feisty, she was chasing all the other birds away, even challenging the larger red-wing blackbirds.  She got plenty, and kept coming back for more!
It was a very overcast day when I took the reference photos, she was a very dull olive, with just hints of red, but had the most amazing crest!


  1. Lovely work! Great job since the beginning of the Challenge! Good Luck to you. :)
