These Birds are Blue.

I'm getting ready for another bird painting, this one of bluebirds, and what better way to start then to do a few pencil sketches. The eastern bluebird is a year-round resident of Virginia, unually found in fields and other open areas or areas with scattered trees. They are seen frequently in my neighborhood. Last year I had a tomato plant. (I know, I didn't think I could grow them!) This year maybe a bluebird box. Maybe I can grow a few. :)

  1. Bonjour mon ami francais,

    You are very close! I investigated and found that the name is Sialia sialis. Bien sur, I should learn the scientific names!
