Many of us use birds in our art. Whether we are painters, work in collage, clay, fabric, wire, or whatever, birds are great subjects. I think it was the last issue of Cloth Paper Scissors with birds featured. Well, this is post is just to share a local bird experience to give you inspiration.
My neighborhood is overrun right now with mockingbirds and it's mating season apparently. There's one on top of a telephone pole. There's another one perched on the very tip top of the tallest tree, swaying in the breeze. More on the next block as well. Their voices travel far. They are all pouring out their hearts trying to attract whatever females are in the vicinity.
