Wild Background

I like to sketch REAL birds every now and then…

These quick sketches inspired today’s hat wearing weird bird:

I like how the wild background makes the pencil sketch stand out.

What do you think?

On a sad note, I recently had to say goodbye to my sweet kitty, Jack who I have blogged about in several posts.

This picture shows Jack lying on the dried Catmint in our yard. One of his favorite spots to soak up the sunshine!

Jack is no longer in pain but I miss him a great deal. Always hard to loose a furry friend.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Weird Birds

This pattern has been showing up a lot in my journal:

I usually fill in the shape with collage paper scraps like this one:

I decided to try making a weird bird with this shape. I colored it with Copic markers and added a few doodles.

Here is the first one:

I had so much fun, I created a second one:

And a third one!

One never knows where the NEXT weird bird idea will come from!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Old Geyser

Today’s weird bird is sometimes confused with an old Geezer bird…

But this one is definitely an Old Geyser!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Spotted Quail

I spotted a Quail in my yard the other day. I just love watching them skitter across the yard always on the look out for my cat!

Today’s weird bird resembles a Quail:

Perhaps it is a Spotted Quail?

Did you know the little apostrophe on top of both male and female‘s heads is called a plume or topknot? The male’s plume is more pronounced.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Easter Flowers

I started a watercolor recently that reminded me of colorful Easter eggs:

Then I added some flower doodles to my watercolor with a micron pen:

The flowers were inspired by this bouquet of Easter flowers:

Wishing you a happy Easter!

Cheers! 🙂

If The Shoe(bill) Fits…

Today’s weird bird is my interpretation of a Shoebill bird from the cover of this book:

Is this one tough old bird?

Well, if the Shoe(bill) fits…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

For The Birds…

I recently completed this 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle (size is approximately 19 x 27 inches). It is Birds of Western North America.

It caught my attention because it had BIRDS! (120 of them)

Thank goodness the birds were numbered on the puzzle, although the numbers were very, very tiny on the box photo. It did come with a identification chart.

Today’s weird bird is called, Scrambled as in my mind after finishing this puzzle!

Searching for beaks, feet, tail feathers, wings, eyes… oh, my!

If you are looking for a challenging jigsaw puzzle, you may like it…

I’m going back to a less complicated puzzle. This one is definitely for the birds!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Spring Forward

In the United States, we spring forward on March 14 which means we get to set our clocks ahead an hour, gaining more daylight. Hoorah!

In preparation, this weird bird was trying on several Spring outfits in a very lighthearted way…

She is even wearing eyeglasses like mine! Lol!

The Spring bouquet is from my sweet husband for my birthday last week.

The sun is shining and we are having Spring like weather this week in the Pacific Northwest. Time to celebrate!

Happy Spring and Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

New Eyeglasses

I can see clearly now…

I wonder do birds ever lose their eye sight?

My eyesight continues to get worse as I age. I recently ordered new eyeglasses with new frames. They are ready for me to pick them up today, I can’t wait!

New eyeglasses were my inspiration for today’s weird bird.

Do you wear eyeglasses or do you prefer contacts? Perhaps you have excellent vision and don’t need either!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😎

A Snowbird?

During a recent snow storm…

A weird bird of a different flock showed up…

A Snowbird!

Not the typical snowbird that goes to warmer weather during the winter…

It was a good day to complete another jigsaw puzzle:

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Stay warm! 😃
