Rained in....

We were supposed to band today but we had a massive thunderstorm roll through Brownwood this morning. We are now officially 2 days behind on our banding schedule, due to bad weather. That means we have to keep banding until Monday and then we get two days off.

Since we had the day off today I took some time to draw a male Painted Bunting. During yesterday's banding we actually had 5 painted buntings and only one other species, a migrating Swainson's Thrush. We'll see what tomorrow will bring after today's storm.

I love your drawing of the painted bunting! Could I order a packette of notecards? ;) LOL... I'm teasing.
