Jackdaw

Back to the garden birds -jackdaws remind me of a Welsh nursery rhyme I used to sing at school and which I still sing now in my job working with children - Mi Welais Jac y Do - a great feel good nursery rhyme!

and a couple of shots of the greedy goldfinches in the garden....starting with one taken by my 12 year old daughter who gets the best view of the feeders from her bedroom window, the sunflower hearts are going down very well, having to fill them up every day.....


The next two taken by Gary


I feel like I'm not getting out for many good walks lately and hoping to get a good walk in on Friday - up in the Lake District to do the Kentmere Horseshoe, a walk I've not done before so really hoping for good views and great photos!

  1. Your painting of the Jackdaw is beautiful..his feathers so shiny..excellent job. These pictures are really nice of these colorful birds..I'm becoming a bird watcher lately..it seems that there's more of a variety lately.

  2. Great piccies Sharon and lovely Jackdaw. We don't have those where we are so it's a treat to see your painting. Hope you get good weather for your walk.

  3. Now, you knew I'd come over for a painting of a blackbird, didn't you? ha ha You have been creating and sharing some beautiful birds - many unusual to me so even more fun to see. I kept thinking your bird paintings would inspire me, but instead I said, "Why should I paint them? I couldn't do as well as Sharon is doing with them so I'll just enjoy her versions!" I know, just an excuse but a pretty good one!

  6. Great job with the black, Sharon! I find it hard to produce good dark colors without turning them to mud. You managed beautifully.
