Sitting by the warm fire in the stove in the cabin at the beach, I peered out the window to observe a crow perched on a beach log waiting for a chance to grab a tasty meal that might appear. I grabbed my pencil and sketched it before it flew away. Using the binoculars, I peered out to the water in Puget Sound for water fowl. There I spotted a lone Pacific Loon bobbing in and out of the surface in search for his meal under water. I have never seen two together, they are always alone. Closer to shore is a twosome swimming around on the surface dipping their beaks into the water, shaking their heads and cleaning their feathers…always moving and difficult to sketch. I sketched the female bird, a Wigeon…not enough time to capture the more colorful male.
