Animal Wednesday - Dickcissel

This past Sunday we were out birding and my DB got a great picture of a Dickcissel perched on a weed. There aren't so many around right now. Many have already flown South.
Happy Animal Wednesday. For more animals go to Auntie Mim's Blog here.

I tried to do a post for tomorrow but BLogger has decided it must be posted today. Sorry.

It's lovely and what a great painting. You should so a book of your bird paintings so that they are all together - they're so good!

Just a beautiful job on this bird Lisa. Not surprising since you love birds.
I have always wanted to see one of these but apparently they don't come to our part of Wisconsim or they hide well.

I have had trouble with pre posting blogger also.

Robin, the dickcissel sort of says it's name. "dick dick zzzzzzzzzll. Ha... Hope this helps. If you really want to hear it you can go to Cornell's bird site and listen to it. Thanks so much for your kind comments. Cheers.

Lisa, thank you so much for your Dickcissel information! I did visit the Cornell site - it's WONDERFUL! It was lovely to learn about Dickcissels - and to hear their voice!

Now I can truly appreciate your drawing even more.... he's perfect!

Thank you again......

Wow Lisa... what a wonderful capture of such a pretty little bird... very nice! I love your journal notes on your paintings too. Browsing on your Artsy blog always puts me in the moon to pick up a pencil :-D

How beautiful! I have never seen this type bird here...I will have to see if they fly anywhere near here in the winter!!! I put out a seed block a few days ago and immediately Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal showed up!

Gosh, you're good at drawing birds. This really looks good, but I have no idea what a Dickissel is. I'll see if I can spot any around here.
Love your lotus from the previous post also.
