Spatzie # 27

Most of us think of English Sparrows invading other bird's bird houses and making a royal nuisance out of themselves. In western Washington they build their own nests -- nests that look like prickly soccer balls. They are a cheerful addition to an oasis of trees out in the middle of vast openess.

Pelican fountain pen with ink and watercolor added.

I am way overdue to be looking through the posts here and commenting on them!! I can see that I've missed some wonderful posts.

This is a sweet composition of the bird with the nest in the tree. What a great composition.

Neat sketch of the bird and the nest. I have seen them build like this between the arms of a cactus.
