Birds of Prey
May 11 2010: There is nothing quite like Spring in Wisconsin. The other day I got to watch a Bald Eagle eating a fresh catch. He was near the road in a field, and he didn't mind that I was observing him. I was only 30 feet from him. That was very cool! Then I collected some black and white Pileated Woodpecker feathers on a bike ride yesterday. (Poor guy!) He was road kill. I'm putting the finishing touches on a painting for the juried Wittenberg Art Show coming up. It is a watercolor of a moonrise. I will also enter one of my great blue herons that I painted last summer.
