Chestnut-backed Chickadee

Like many of our fellow homeschool bloggers, we were overjoyed with Nana’s newest pastel tutorial at Hodgepodge, the Chickadee.  Though we don’t have the Carolina Chickadee in Northern California,  the Chestnut-backed Chickadee is common to our region.

We thereby illustrated this fellow and hope to observe them ourselves soon.  To entice a few to our backyard (open space where we’ve recently seen deer and jack rabbits), we put out a few bird cupcakes.

  1. Absolutely fabulous! What beautiful results. Each one unique. Lovely features and painterly effect. And I am sure your bird cupcakes will welcome feathered friends! ~Tricia

  2. Amazing job on those birds! We have the chestnut backed ones too – but they like to hide high in the spruce trees out front, it’s not one we’ve been able to gaze at. The Oregon Junco is our mainstay on the deck, and it was hard to re-draw the black masks – without being able to see it. Y’all did a great job! I’ve really enjoyed these lessons also!
