The Wood Thrush illustration was commissioned by Stackpole Books for Laura Erickson's 101 Ways to Help Birds . The inked version was completed in 2005 and the digital tinting added in 2007. The expression of this songbird is amazing! it seems to fix the viewer in its eyes and holds a person there. This was one of the earliest bird images I had originally designed as only an ink illustration, but later added color to via Photoshop.
The Wood Thrush is a medium sized songbird. It is closely related to the American Robin. It is widely distributed across North America. During the winter months this Neotropical songbird migrates to Central America and Mexico. The Wood Thrush is omnivorous, feeding on worms and other soil invertebrates but it will also eat fruits and berries. It is the official bird of the District of Columbia.
