House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)

Some quickie sketches from the new sketchbook to wind down the night. House Sparrows are crazy super common. I see them just about everywhere, but that doesn't stop me from oogling their really interesting markings. Plus they kinda have awesome black beards. Bonus!

Belted Kingfisher (Megaceryle alcyon)

Here are some quick Belted Kingfisher sketches inspired by the backpacking trip my wife and I went on for this years wedding anniversary. We camped along the bend of a river that had a crazy amount of kingfisher activity. They would come zipping around the bend all throughout the day, chattering and making all kinds of ruckus. We ended up naming our campsite "Kingfisher Kurve" in their honor.
