I see these foraging around in the pine and leaf litter under the trees in my yard fairly often. And sometimes I see one hopping about on my car, probably stealing a glance at its reflection in the glass. But never can I get a photo before it flies off. I must learn to spend some time lollygagging (I know, strange word!) in the yard and maybe I can catch more photos of the wildlife around here!
I've started a new painting in gouache because I like these birds!
Here's a litttle photo with some of the work so far.
