And another two

The treecreeper is a personal favourite.  I've only seen one twice but I think it might be one of the most beautiful birds I've ever seen.  

The pigeon is unfinished and suffered worst of all from the poor colour settings on the scanner.

two more birds

 I was surprised to see a crested tit recently, not because they're particularly rare to my knowledge, but simply because I'd never seen one to the best of my knowledge.
The grey wagtail on the other hand is a frequent visitor to our front garden and a prominent local inhabitant.

life got busy

Well life got busy and then my wife went away for 3 nights with work and I had nothing to do but paint.  8 more birds coming in pairs.  New scanner does things I don't like to the colour so so once I figure it I'll post truer images. First up the cormorant and the rook.  Both black feathered birds with the cormorant being a beautiful purple/black and the rook a grey/blue/black.  So many shades of near black.
