Male Northern Cardinal, Cardinalis cardinalis. Feathers bend quite a bit imore in regular flight than it might seem from casual watching. Being Cardinalids, of the family Cardinalidae oc, the three cardinal Cardinals of Cardinalis are closesly related to about *half* of the passerine birds we call "grosbeaks" and just a *few* of the birds we call "buntings" (all north american buntings, members of the Old World bunting family are called "sparrows" in the nearctic) and of course the one and only beloved "dickcissel"
Chuds also use the term "redbird" like yeah thxxx. They mainly eat seed, grain, fruits supplemented with insects, like you'd expect. 19 subspecies, dont know what tf thats about, alright go back to ur capitalism, shills. Haveaniceday #bird#birdsofinstagram#cardinal#red#flight#passerine#redbird#chud
House Sparrow - They may be common, but I like the brown patterns on their wings. We get loads of these in the garden now days, they make their nests on the neighbours roof underneath the solar pannels. www.ChrisDraperPhotography.com #birdsofinstagram#birdphotography#sparrow#urbanwildlife
Soooo, the acrylic paints arrived today. I don’t have a fine brush yet but I was dying to get started and try them...I was splodging paint everywhere & testing different techniques - no idea how you’re ‘supposed’ to do it 😂
I only bought 10 colours so it was a steep learning curve trying to learn how to mix them to get the right colours. All in all (apart from not having a decent brush & so struggling to get fine detail) I was reasonably happy with my experiment...I think me & acrylics are going to get on... 🎨😊
