Today I thought I would share with you some images I took late fall/winter of 2019. I went for quite a few walks throughout the fall at a marsh and bird sanctuary near my home. I'd just bought a used Canon Powershot camera for filming my painting tutorials at an alternate angle. I didn't realize that it has such a great zoom function on it! I surprised myself with the pictures I was able to get of many of the birds that I saw on my walks. This changed everything!
Since then I have been enjoying going for walks and looking for new types of birds and can finally get picutres of them that have enough detail in them to use as a reference photo. Just need to find the time to paint them now. Let me know if you know what type of sparrow I saw below in the comments.
