Downey woodpecker

I have never liked birds. They scare me.

Ever since knowing shawn i have grown to love them, they have their own life, their own characteristics. They are so cute.

When i was over in Alliston a few weeks ago i stood outside and would wait for the birds in the morning. It took about an hour for them to be "OK" with me. I was up close and personal with them, maybe 5 feet away. I took photos of the Downey woodpecker, the black-hatch chickedee and the blue jay.

I love drawing birds :) More to come in the near future.
