8/8/17: Draw a Bird today!

I have a soft spot for cockatoos. I’ve wanted one for years but my husband has always said no. They are a lot of work and live a long time but have so much personality. I follow a few on Instagram where they scream and carry on like there’s no tomorrow. 

One of the best pictures ever, taken by Kerfe last year in New York. This lady just had her bird sitting on her shoulder. She told us how much work these birds require but she didn’t seem to mind. Happy Draw a Bird Day!

    I knew this woman who had birds for pets
    It was a long time ago
    But I to remember it being
    A little crazy

    To be pedantic ..,
    Rip, tear, dismember. Lunch.
    But never munch.
    Hawks never munch.

    Love the drawing, the photo. And the hawk picture brought back a memory – I once watched a hawk eat a squirrel, on my picnic table, in quite a leisurely way. My goodness, what a guest, but I didn’t have to cook for him…Look what your bird day has done! Given me a nice remembering and a chance to know something new about you, too.

    I actually had a little blue bird in my collage today – and covered it up. I am forever missing Draw a Bird Day. Oh, well. At least, I didn’t miss your fabulous and fun post. Love the photo of you that Kerfe took ~ those birds are a lot of work and there used to be a guy who sat outside our local Starbucks in PA with the same bird – oh, did he draw a crowd!
