Can’t we all just get along?

Pine Siskins

We have had some late season Pine Siskin fledglings. Hanging around complaining and begging to be fed. They are able to eat on their own but they are at the awkward stage wanting parents but sort of able to fly (I personally never left this stage). I was lacing up my hiking boots on the front porch when one of these little guys started hoped up to me and chirping. I baby birded it some water. Without effort I picked it up and carried around the house to the “Siskin Zone”. Another young bird immediately hopped over and this video was the result. I hope they will be ok. I know there isn’t much that I can do. There is bird seed and other Pine Siskins… Live Free?

Night Flyer 8” diameter acrylic

I bought some 8″ round wooden boards to paint on. These have a back cradled frame and are really nice. Thought it would be fun to do some portraits!

I am also using some art supplies given to me by Jerry’s Artarama. They sent me a lot of fun materials to play with.
