Early Bird

16 Jun

16 pigeon

Just got back from our visit to the seaside near Brighton, a six hour drive, and time for a quick blog. This is a pigeon that was snaffling wild bird seed from the feeder in my friends’ garden this morning. It was too big to stand on the pegs on the feeder, which is meant to be for tiny birds, so it clung onto the wire attached to some outdoor lights.

It was one of those pigeons with a white patch around their shoulders. I was up very early and the garden was buzzing with wildlife, loads of different birds, a squirrel and Mango the cat. Drawn with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size F, into my A5 pink silk recycled sari sketchbook.
