Sharp Tail in Winter

Occasionally, when we get deep snow here, the Sharp Tail come into my yard to feed on the Russian Olives.  They perch way out on flimsy-looking limbs, and with their feathers all fluffed up for warmth, they look ridiculously unsafe there. Such beautiful birds,  they’re only one of several species of upland birds we’re privileged to have here.  This one is actually a guest at my cousin’s ranch, down on the Montana border, where the beautiful and increasingly rare Sage Grouse also shares territory.

    Hi Gena. Thanks so much for your visit! I appreciate greatly your comments. And yes, please do add my blog to your list. I would be most honoured. Oh, and i love how you do the snow in your paintings. Not an easy one for some but it looks so natural here. I sm learning so much. I did not know what a Sharp Tail was or a Russian Olive. Now i do! I am inspired now to go paint. Perhaps a purple cow or a wee village. Happy painting Gena.
