Leigh Ann of Junipurr put together a nice collection of birds from different Etsy Shops and included one of my whale illustrations with Puffins. Check out her blog and all the birds here.

Wow. This is the most snow I've seen in DC... I suppose it's the most snow I've EVER seen.

Some more bird pictures for now.

We had a snowstorm the other day. Our bird feeders become extra busy when other food is snowed over. It's always a good time to sit inside and do some backyard birdwatching.

Lots of Woodpeckers, Wrens, Chickadees, Juncos, Blue Jays, and more.
