I enjoy drawing birds I see in my front yard. This book would be valuable for me to study and learn new techniques.

I love birds but so do my

I love birds but so do my cats, therefore I have to discourage them from coming into my garden and can't feed them though I'd love to. When I had a rabbit and no cats they used to come into my kitchen to eat the rabbit food - that was a delight and something of a thrill. Now I have to pray the magpie who comes to tease my cats doesn't fall prey to one of them. I have managed to rescue fledglings and mice from their claws and once my son (when he was small and we lived elsewhere without cats) and I rescued a blackbird and fed him imperial pate for a week. He'd scream to be fed and followed me around the house spattering his scat. Holland Park was happy to take him as he was tame and he amused the children who visited until he decided to fly off and live wild. Now whenever I see a blackbird near my garden which is close to Holland Park (London) I pretend it's one of his offspring. Another time my son and I rescue some ducklings who were abandoned - their mom had been gang-raped this duck fancier explained - and we took them home to our old flat where we slept with them nestled on our chests to keep them warn. Next day were were able to turn them over to the RSPCA for their incubator mod cons. These are privileged memories we'll always treasure because it's so extraordinary to interact with baby birds - it's not that often that they can survive such traumas.

I do love birds, in nature

I do love birds, in nature and have two at home. Also, I have dabbled in art recently, watercolor and pen and ink and would welcome advice from John Muir.

A combination of two of my favorite things - bird watching and sketching. I would love to be able to accurately sketch birds for my grandsons who have shared many bird watching moments with me. Thanks for the opportunity.
