Bell’s Sparrow 2


Bell’s Sparrow and flowering chamise (Adenostoma fasciculatum). Portrait in colored pencil.It is in fact, one of my favorite local birds. Newly recognized as a full species, it was formerly considered conspecific with the current Sagebrush Sparrow. They were collectively called Sage Sparrow. There have been a few versions of this portrait. This version is completely new and hopefully an improvement over earlier efforts.
