sunflowers original oil painting

This is my morning fun for today, painted before the sun came up. I have so much trouble sleeping that I might as well just get up and paint. At least it's productive, right?

And here is a time-lapse video of the painting, sorry my head was a bit in the way!

flycatcher

There are lots of varieties of flycatchers, according to allaboutbirds.org, and I think this one might actually be a Willow Flycatchers . They are brownish-olive birds that are best known for their voice. Look for them singing their distinctive song on top of willows and other shrubs in early summer just after they arrive from Central and South America where they spend the winter. Although they’re common across the United States, the Southwestern subspecies is federally endangered.

common yellowthroat bird painting

According to allaboutbirds.org, the common yellowthroats broad black mask lends a touch of highwayman’s mystique to the male Common Yellowthroat. Look for these furtive, yellow-and-olive warblers skulking through tangled vegetation, often at the edges of marshes and wetlands. Females lack the mask and are much browner, though they usually show a hint of warm yellow at the throat. Yellowthroats are vocal birds, and both their witchety-witchety-witchety songs and distinctive call notes help reveal the presence of this, one of our most numerous warblers.

This is a particularly handsome fella if you ask me, wonder what his witchety-witchety-witchety songs sounds like?!?
