home again

Back from spring break- having acomplished much thrifting, birdwatching, a little bird banding and lots of visiting.
Here's a piece done with ink washes and some creative (read: unfinished) coloring. I've been considering revisiting the Midwest Midgard theme I was playing around with a few years ago. I feel like I never really did any up to snuff.
Here's a white tailed (!) chickadee who has been frequenting our Ohio feeders. (Their tails are always grey.) He was banded last fall I think. You can see the regular band on his right and the color band on his left.
