Draw A Bird, July 2019

Day 8 of World Watercolor Month (Flying High) and also Draw a Bird Day for July

This cute little songbird is a blue gray gnatcatcher. It eats insects (apparently gnats are a favorite) and spiders, and it uses silk from spider webs to construct its nest.

It can also catch insects while in flight, which is kinda cool. We need a dozen or so of these birds in our yard this time of year when lots of icky things are buzzing about. Hope your summer is going well!
