Winter Music in pen and ink

This week's Illustration Friday prompt is music. I had thoughts about going abstract for this one, but in the end my brain's too tired from this past week to start thinking that way. So... a chickadee instead.

And why? Well, because they're about the only things out there still making music at this time of year. Around here, anyway. Besides, they're a favourite of mine.

Black-capped Chickadee songs (or vocalisations, if you want to go all naturalist. Which I don't at the moment) are actually pretty complex and are worth looking up. You know, rather than me looking them up for you. I'm having a bit of a lazy mind day, I guess.

My own personal music today has been 60s pop. No idea why, and nothing to do with chickadees. But there you go.

Charming illustration!

We just moved back to New England after being in CA for 16 years. I put a feeder out last week and I've already had a Pileated Woodpecker, several adorable Titmice and Nuthatches, sparrows and finches. Lucky me!

Your name will go in the hat for the raven drawing :)
