@hutchgigi, I second Barbk, your dove silhouette is lovely. It seems drawing a silhouette can sometimes be really helpful for narrowing down bird identification. Can't birders identify some birds by their silhouette alone?
While in Costa Rica I was trying to draw a bird of prey sitting on a telephone wire but it was backlit and I could not see many details. I took a photograph and hoped maybe I could fill in more details on my sketch from the photo. Well, as you can see, the photo did not help much with the details but it is a great photo to use for a silhouette or negative space drawing. I am offering it up to you Ginny or anyone who would like to use it! Click here to view the attachment
