One of my favorite places to walk with the dogs are golf holes 17 and 18. This page celebrates #17 - which has, by far, the most bird activity. Big birds! And, wonderful views of the marsh.
There's quite a lot to read here and it's not one of my favorite spreads.... but, the info is pertinent to the theme of the book.
I laughed when I finished sketching the two closest birds. I must have been holding the book at an angle as they are listing to the left! Oh well, this kind of thing can happen when you're in a hurry and sketching with pen :)
As written, the Storks are not always around in these numbers. I've learned to carry my camera every time I take the dogs out. I know that these special treats wont' wait for me to get the dogs home and rush back to photograph.
The dogs have become quite patient while I photograph. However, the tri-color (Grizz) insists on a treat for being such a good girl..... as in she won't move! I am such a well trained human!
Stay tuned to learn more about Crows and Ibis hanging out together!
