These little birds have left my yard but not before I painted and sketched them several times. So, the interesting surprise about them is the bright red under the wings which you only get to see when they are in flight. I never did spot a female.

Sometimes the day just brings you a great surprise. I am a member of a  local birding group on Facebook. Everyone was posting their pictures of the male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I have never seen one,  so I went and googled how to attract them to my feeder. I got up and went to the window and there he was on the feeder! I was so excited I nearly tripped getting my camera. So, they came and fed, and I watched and watched. I wondered why I have never seen them before. I don't know the answer to that but I do know they migrate north. I was never able to spot a female.
I've watched the feeders on and off all day today, but I think they have traveled to northern Ohio and Michigan. I hope they stop by on the migration south this winter, I will be watching for them :)

I usually find house sparrows at my feeder, then I noticed this pretty little White Throated Sparrow. A little shy, it came to feast on a few sunflower seeds. Such a pretty little bird!

This little puppet has been with our family for many years. We bought it at a craft fair when the kids were small. Somehow it never quite made it to the dumpster, and somehow I think that's a good thing. I know some wonderful little people who still enjoy this raggedy little puppet. I think they are taken with the way the wood feet clip clop on the floor, when they try to make him walk.

So, there is a wonderful bakery in Cincinnati named Servatii's. This is a little raspberry cheesecake delight. Was it difficult to paint? Not so much. Was it delicious? You bet!
It's been awhile since I've painted a pastry, so I thought I would give it a try again. The most fun was the cupcake wrapper :)

This Robin was sitting on the fence that surrounds an old Shaker Cemetery in Armco Park in Lebanon, Ohio. He sat perfectly for a few minutes, watching and wondering.

I love how they fluff their feathers when they are cold. This was a very cold Ohio morning, and there were several Robins in the tree. This one looked particularly unhappy with the freezing weather. I liked the way the orange in his breast feathers played against the blue sky.
