Nest, 2014, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 5"x7"
I've been drawing and painting owls, and owls and owls. We seem to have a great crop of them on the island this year, and their little peanut shapes are just so appealing. Each seems to have a unique character.
Across the canal from me is a vacant lot, and it seems some plovers are nesting there. I see one or another of a pair move back and forth across the freshly cut field. Hopefully there's a second crop of young ones, and they're feeding them.
So a nest -- on the ground, not in it like the owls, but I can't see what's in an owl's nest. Do plovers have spotted eggs?
