If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you know I’m a Northern girl. So when it comes to birds, I do see a good variety of breeds, but nothing too exotic.
The last Gallery Feature in my Feathered Fauna bird series was the Baltimore Oriole. They’re a beautiful, flashy bird, but alas, there are none in Northern Ontario.
So for my next painting, I decided to look a bit closer to home.
Enter the pint-size, pretentious pontiff of the Northern forest: The red-breasted nuthatch.
