Drawing - Tennessee Warbler


Tennessee Warbler - Graphite on Paper

I complain alot about living in the city.  There is one big advantage to where we live though - warblers!!  We live pretty close to the middle of this pretty big city, with a pretty small yard, but quite close to the river and among a lot of big, old trees.  So we actually have a pretty cool yard list, all things considered. 

We've had Tennessee Warblers, Yellow Warblers, Yellow-Rumped Warblers, Wilsons Warblers, Canada Warblers, Mourning Warblers, Nashville Warblers, Black and White Warblers, Blackpoll Warblers, Bay Breasted Warblers, Chestnut Sided Warblers, Blackburnian Warblers, Cape May Warblers, Palm Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Ovenbirds, Orange Crowned Warblers and a lone Northern Waterthrush. 

Hoping for a Black-Throated Green Warbler for this year!  The only other two I think I could even hope for would be Pine Warbler and Northern Parula, but probably very slim chances there!

They don't stay long at all, and nearly all of my pictures I've taken of warblers SUCK, but May is a pretty fun month around here! 


  1. That's gorgeous. What a great light touch you have with plumage!!

  2. That's very nice. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
