Pair of Collared doves sketched with spirit markers and pens

Posted On: Monday 19th March 2012
Summary: It's that time of the year - the birds are all getting ready to nest. Lots of cooing and billing in the garden. These two collared doves are pretty well made up with each other. I sketched them with spirit markers and felt tip pens

collared dovesI sketched this pair of collared doves from an upstairs window at home in Cambridge through binoculars on a tripod. Took about 3 minutes. Good practice.

Suddenly the birds are singing, mating, and altogether making themselves more visible. It's a good time to sketch birds because the trees are not yet in leaf.
