52 Birds: Cerulean Warbler

One of the other nerdy fun things about this illustration project is learning new birds from my region, some that are harder to spot, and generally more elusive than your common cardinal and robin.  Enter the cerulean warbler!

I didn't even know these little birderson existed until I sat down yesterday to flip through my bird reference book, in hope of inspiration.  Turns out they are quite small and spend most of their time high in the treetops, so they are quite tricky to spot.  I'm going to be on the lookout now, but in the meantime, I settled for drawing one:

As always, prints and stuff can be found in my shop.

Happy weekend!
