"Peregrines" watercolor 5"x7"

Birding in Vermont is made pretty easy at Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS), which is where I brought my watercolors and left my binoculars in the car. I spent the day with owls, buteos and vultures.
VINS rehabilitate injured raptors to tiny hummers and I could view fledging cedar waxwings, bald eagles, and these Peregrine Falcons among many others. What a treat to see them so close, even with their crooked wing or blind eye. Their colors, elegance and beauty is unsurpassed.
