Happy Groundhog Day!

It's Groundhog Day!  Wow did that ever get here fast!  I'd go for an early spring, but it feels really like early February here this a.m., around 10 degrees Fahrenheit out there - the sun is shining bright so I guess it'll see its shadow and we're out of luck!  Oh well, business as usual.

I'm still working on small Bird portraits, just finishing one that was a bit trickier for me...too much small work! But I'm still happy with how it came out - a Brown of our first larger songbirds returning in the spring! These are low nesters (usually in low thick brush or bushes) and found in our yard and grove all spring and summer - Great Singers! One of the Mimic-Thrushes (from the family Mimidae)...very fun to listen too all spring and summer long! 

Keep your spirits up - enjoy the winter days and look forward to spring and all it brings.  That old Woodchuck will just have to go back to bed - see him in March!
