Great technique, aallan! Love your pigeon!
Beck, if I could change one thing about my set up here it would be to get the feeders in easy view from the house. We have to keep the feeders outside the dog yards (our dogs will make themselves sick "cleaning up" under the feeders....sigh) so they're a good 65 feet from the windows. Likely I won't be able to comfortably sketch from life until it warms up in spring! Mostly this winter I've been using pics, of which I luckily have a great many, being a photog addict! LOL
