From my earliest memories I recall looking out the kitchen window in the backyard of the home I grew up in Minneapolis. We had a large birdfeeder there that was kept full of seed, no matter how much snow was on the ground or how cold the temperature got. I don't think the visitors were all that interesting to my parents - robins and sparrows mostly - but when we were visited by the vivid red of the occasional cardinal it was really a spectacular sight. It made the dreary gray of the Minnesota winters somehow less so. When I began to draw songbirds early on, I knew they would become a favorite subject of mine. At the time of writing this I have completed 36 illustrations of these birds, including hummingbirds. I know some of the drawings here aren't of birds that traditionally fit into the songbird category, but until I can collect enough of type to create a new page, here's where you'll find them. Many of these birds were commissioned for the Laura Erickson's book 101 Way to Help Birds . I try to add a new songbird or hummingbird every few weeks, but if you'd like to see a species species of bird added here please send me an email
Wolves are largest members of the Canidae family. It is believed the lineage of the wolf can be traced back about 37 million years to North America. They are characterized by large, powerful jaws and bushy tails. They are also known They are the ancestors of all domestic dogs. Most of the subspecies of wolves are either extinct in the wild, endangered or critically endangered. Because of the perceived threat of wolves to humans, they have been extirpated from nearly all of their historical ranges on all continents, except for the polar regions where development of land has been minimal. The coats of wolves range in color from jet black, to red, yellow, orange to pure white. The thickness of their coats depend on the environment the animals live in. The coat of the Gray Wolf which lives in colder climates is very thick, whereas the Ethiopian Wolf's coat is very light. They are also highly adapted to their environments, as the Maned Wolf of South America shows with its tall legs that give the predator the ability to see above the high grass where it lives. Due to the fact that wolves have spent so many centuries being persecuted my humans, they have become extremely secretive and are rarely encountered in the wild.
