Merlin (drawing)

Another bird for my Favourite Bird Series, for a friend’s birthday.  The Merlin is a species of falcon that is distributed in the holarctic. It is a very effective hunter of birds.  A blogging friend of mine recently wrote a lovely post about them; you can check it out here: http://rollingharbour.com/2015/01/12/fierce-little-falcons-merlins-on-abaco/

The bird, twigs, and icicles were done in coloured pencils, the background in watercolour.
