Animal Wednesday - Parrot and Woodpecker

Yes, I have been a bit busy lately. I have done a few sketches. This one is a Lilac-crowned Parrot done on a card for a fellow blogger, Lilac Lamb, that has befallen an accident. She should have it by now so that is why I am posting. I hope she feels better even though it is going to take time for her to fully recover. 
The image below is something that stuck in my head and I couldn't get it out unless I sketched it. We were driving into the park where we walk Annie and I saw a red-bellied woodpecker fly onto a tree branch. I put up my bins and saw this face looking back at me from a dark hole in the tree. It was so cute. 
Have you had any wildlife encounters lately?  Happy Animal Wednesday.

How fun.. Nicely done too. When I was four my folks got a parrot. At the time it was called a half moon parrot..called Coco...not sure what it would be called today...or if they still sell them.. That was many many moons ago..lol it rode around on my shoulder all the time. Loved that bird..nice memory.
