Here’s another from that preserve. He just watched us as his mate was busy in a nest nearby. She was well hidden until she would stretch her neck to gather more grasses for the nest. The preserve has a board walk that’ll bring humans quite close to these birds and maybe they’ve grown used to us over the years, at least this couple. It’s 7″ x 10″ using pencil, watercolor and gouache on cotton paper. $65 unframed.
