Red Bellied Woodpecker

Another bird of the garden, the WV Botanical Garden, that is. I am still working on the bird catalog for the children’s section of the garden and this is one of the birds requested. This is the fourth bird in the series and I think it turned out quite well.

I am providing a line drawing in the children’s catalog to be used as a coloring page. I have included it here:

The inspiration for this drawing came from Bohan Art and his YouTube video:

I also used this reference photo from Pixabay taken by Kim which can be downloaded for free by using this link: https://pixabay.com/photos/red-bellied-woodpecker-feeder-2163768/

Sketching and painting these birds from the garden makes me anxious for spring to come. It’s just around the corner, right?

I guess I need to learn to love bird watching in the cold weather. So this weekend, I intend to bundle up, grab the binoculars, and go see which birds are in the garden.

Enjoy the weekend!
