Day 55: Greater Sage-Grouse
A drag queen of the American and Canadian prairie, known for their mating rituals that can go on for hours at a time.  The females are far less fabulous.

another excellent daily bird drawing blog I have been alerted to! it’s so hard for me to resist reblogging each of the posts on this blog, the artist has such a unique style and they imbue each bird with so much personality!! I love it. 
If you’ve got any slots left for requests, dailybirddrawings, would you consider adding the plumbeous water redstart or the long-tailed tit? Love your blog! :)

February 24, 2014 - White-winged Fairywren (Malurus leucopterus)
The White-winged Fairywren is native to most of Central Australia. Some males develop bright blue plumage during breeding season. Younger birds, usually of the same family group, assist with the care of chicks.

A follower just alerted me to the existence of this blog and I’m so glad they did! This is one of the cutest and most informative little bird blogs I’ve ever seen and the art is so amazing! It’s a pretty new blog, from the looks of it, but I can tell it’s going places. Each illustration is cuter than the next- definitely worth a look and a follow! :)

3. Red origami cranes flying away from hands.

For Valentine’s Day, she would always make a string of seven red paper cranes for each of her classmates instead of going to Walmart and buying generic cards like everyone else. Each one in the set would be made of different kinds of paper, some shiny and crinkly, some pale and elegant, some bold and hard on the eyes.
She would start on January 14th, making a few cranes every day until she finished her task. The living room was her studio, and everyone in her family knew not to step foot in there once the floor became covered with the crimson paper.
For the sets she made for her two best friends, she would run upstairs to her mother’s room with the cranes and spray them with her favorite perfume, which was heavy and smelled of tuberose and jasmine.
She always shrugged and said “I don’t know, I just like making them because they’re pretty,” when anyone asked her why she went to so much effort to make the cranes, but the real reason was because she had read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes and she thought that if she managed to eventually fold a thousand cranes and give them away to her friends, she would be able to wish that nobody else in her family would ever get sick.
But because it was a secret and she could only fold cranes for Valentine’s Day, she worried that she wouldn’t finish in time before something bad happened again.

Hey guys! So I don’t usually do this (and don’t worry, this really is just a one time plug kind of thing- and at least the picture is bird related?), but I’m really excited about my new project (The Stock Stories) and I wanted to tell you all about it!
So when I’m not looking for pictures of fat birds, I like to write stories, and I was just thinking last night about the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” and if the same applied to stock photography and that it might be a fun literary experiment to try and write meaningful 250 word drabbles for random stock photographs, and so The Stock Stories was born.
Anyways, above is a sample! The plan is to write stories that hit every tone, from pensive to fun to silly to sad, so if that sounds up your alley I’d really appreciate it if you take a look. I’ve got four entries up so far and I plan to update once or twice a week! :)
