Chickadees

This is one of my first attempts to draw birds in pen and ink. I love Chickadees. They are wonderful birds. When a storm hits, you won't find these little fellows hiding in safety. Nope -- they fiercely wing right into the teeth of the wind and seem to enjoy every moment of it. This winter they've flocked to my back yard to eat the seeds I put out.

My brother once told me if I were a bird I would be a Chickadee. I like that. They're plucky!

I'm not familiar with chickadees except as a term of endearment on TV. It's wonderful therefore to see them here in your drawing.

They suit you these little birds. It seems an apt nickname.

I love these little birds! I have so many of them in my backyard and I love their chatter.

Beautiful drawing, sissie.

We have chickadees flocking to our bird feeder this year as well. They are so cute! and now I can think of you when I see them!

These are so sweet - you're perfectly captured their spirit! They are the most fearless, inquisitive, sweet little birds, aren't they?

Being a bird lover also, I cherish seeing both this "chickadee" drawing, and the snow snuggle.... Birds always make me smile and your drawings have done the same..... :) You really captured the sweetness and their toughness!
