Old books and a new idea hatching for me...
This morning was noisy out on the balcony. A crowing currawong in the tree, can you see him here?
A clutch of cockatoos. A gathering of kookaburras. Last year a baby pigeon hatched out here.
Not bad for a tiny balcony in a big city.
It seems that I like birds so much more than I thought.
Please visit my new etsy shop to see.
Many thanks to the eloquent Elisabeth for this week's ornithological word.
Please fly over to her place for more bird watching.

  6. sweet little owl there! I have always wanted to see a kookaburra. I sang the gumtree song when I was little. So nice to see everyone sharing these bird impressions. Thank you.

  7. Dear Jasmin,
    the names of the birds sounds very exotic for me!
    Your inky birds are so fresh and so very light...they seems to start flying ... otherwise they are so hand-tame and pick some food out of your drawinghand... very peaceful.

  8. i think the prettiest thing in these photos is you, jasmin!
    but i do love how you chose to use the old books and that thick black ink and strong lines. birds inspire , dont they!

  9. Patrice Peachface - I think that sounds like a plan!!
