A Little Brown Bird

House Sparrow Watercolor

I was at the beach the other day watching little brown sparrows hopping around. I really liked the play of the brown rocks covered with brown birds with the bright blue ocean in the background, so I wanted to see if I could replicate that feeling without actually painting an ocean. I hope you enjoy!

Song Sparrow

Watching birds eat from my new feeder reminds me of people eating at a drive thru. They fly up to the little perch, grab a wad of Bark Butter, and fly off. I’m becoming the neighborhood bird McDonalds.

This little guy is a Song Sparrow. Here is a link showing how to tell the difference between a Lincoln’s Sparrow and a Song Sparrow.
