Black-chinned Sparrow


A male Black-chinned Sparrow sang from a high perch on Saturday morning. We made the drive up to Loma Prieta in the Santa Cruz Mountains to find my favorite Sparrow and were not disappointed. We could hear its unmistakable and very beautiful song immediately after getting out of the car, but it took a while to get an unobstructed view of it. This drawing took some time to get right as the photo I used for reference was filled with subtle positioning and expression that I could never capture in a life drawing.
