Now is the time of year when acorns are just losing their greenish cast and turning brown. We sat and watched at least five birds for a couple of hours. They kept flying off and grabbing acorns off living trees, then they'd bring it back to their granary tree and either stuff it in a pre-existing hole -- or one kept dropping acorns in the cavity left by a broken off branch. Once we watched an acorn woodpecker dropping acorns down the top of an open pipe! I'm sure he never got to eat those!
I had time to take my sketch as far as getting it inked. I added paint after I got home.
