It’s an odd angle for a bird – straight on. And it makes him look like he’s scheming. But I love the toes.
Lately, I can’t think of sparrows without hearing Neko Case’s gorgeous “Maybe Sparrow.” The video is beautifully animated. Although it bothers me that the bird of prey depicted is an owl, when the line clearly says “Maybe sparrow you should wait, The hawks alight till morning.”
Ah, me and my literal-mindedness.
This such a ridiculous looking bird, I just had to draw him twice. I like this one much better than my first attempt. I especially like the feet.
Why, halfway through the year did I throw in a scientific name? I don’t know. So few of the other drawings have the scientific name because I didn’t want to get it wrong. I love science, but I’m no expert. I’m just an avid appreciator of experts. So yeah- there’s a random genus species for you. Hope it’s right.
