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.

I received this beautiful post card from a dear friend, Teri, of Teri's Painted Daisies. She is doing a new (to me) Japanese art form called Etegami. While I don't exactly understand the form I love the results.
This winter has frozen my muse however I am beginning to feel a thaw with the mail box erupting with this beautiful postcard.  Thank you so much Teri.
