Barry’s Birds in the Wood Duck magazine

My hobby is birding. As such, I’m a member in a few clubs and organizations. One of these is the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club. The club produces the Wood Duck magazine nine times a year, from September to May. I recently submitted a pen and ink drawing of an American Kestrel for the December issue. The editor liked it and suggested we make it a regular feature. Barry’s Birds has hatched and taken flight!

    Love it Barry! I remember your birding in the Sifton Bog when you were doing a workshop for us here in London. So glad you are combining your two passions. Another great use of your skills.

    You certainly captured the Kestrel Barry. It is one of my favourite birds ever since I saw one up close at the annual Birding Festival in McGregor Park (just outside of Port Elgin). Their plumage is so beautiful. I often watch the power lines as that seems to be a favourite perch. The keeper said they are easy to spot as they are always alone – other birds give them a wide berth. Congratulations on your new venture, and a happy holiday season to you and Alida. Sandra

    I thought Kestrel played for the Leafs.

    Beautiful drawing, sir. Clean, yet majestic. Lovely.
