Birds in my Autumn Garden

One of the pleasures of my art sudio is that it overlooks my little back garden, so as I sit by the window drawing ( or thinking about it) I can gaze out at the jumble of back yards and watch the weather, trees, cats and birds coming and going, and capture a few images with my camera. Some of these little birds will make good models for future drawings..
This is a useful back view of the female blackbird, showing folded wings, and tale feathers.

Pyracantha berries are very attractive to many birds

Female blackbirds have speckled breasts



This Blue Tit was attracted by honeysuckle berries
