Warbler on the Watch

8 x 10 inches
Watercolor on Arches 140lb cold press block

When I was scouting locations for possible landscapes to paint the other day, I came across a yellow-rumped warbler. He was in his finest spring plumage, darting in and out amongst the cottonwood trees. After awhile, he settled on a branch just long enough for me to take some fuzzy reference photos (oh, for a telephoto lens!) and then he was off again, most likely guarding his territory from other male warblers.
