Trick or Tweet

A trick or treater came to the door today asking for a hand out. This is a migrating White Throated Sparrow hoping to make his way southward.

Unfortunatly this guy was not cautious and was caught and eaten by a giant monkey. Let that be a lesson to the rest of you little sparrows as you find your way home this late October.


  1. Can we keep the little fella Pa Please!!!

  2. I like the first picture when it has the leaf on him like a piece of clothe !

  3. David, these pictures are unbelievable! What's with the monkey comment tho?

  4. Marnie,
    The giant monkey is in reference to Joe, who was holding the bird, whose size reminded me of KING KONG holding Fay Ray in his monstrous grip!

    I saw it exactly the same way! It's like he's clothed.

  5. What a darling darling little bird--the colors are so wonderful, the photo so magical. WOW!

  6. I would really love to draw that first picture--May I? I'll email you a copy when its done, if you'd like...

  7. Beth,
    Please draw away, I look forward to seeing it! I hope folk will use these images for screen savers, most of them are cropped for wide screen monitors.
