Quick sketches from the West
I still do some car sketching, but only when Joseph's driving! This is in the desert somewhere between Henderson, Nevada, and LA...I love crows, and I always know I can count on them congregating at rest stops in the desert, where people = food! They're quite bold...Corvidae are normally fairly cautious, since humans seem not to appreciate them properly, but these guys are SO over it! Regular western outlaws...
So of course I used my Pentel Pocketbrush to catch those bold black shapes!
Check the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for more on crows...including a recording of their distinctive voices.
