Nov 18

November 14 & 15 my husband and I shared our art on the Madera Wine Trails weekend at the Ficklin Winery.  We were joined by fellow artists Ginny Burdick and Mark Heliger.  I was only able to attend Sunday due to being invited to paint with the Sierra Foothill Conservancy Plein Air Invitational on Saturday…..see blog for other info about Saturday…..

Located next to our viewing area was the Raptor Rescue table.  I love birds, have a few of my own, so it was wonderful to watch all the birds during the day.  Not pictured here were 3 Kestrels,  a Vulture, Screech Owl, Sawett Owl, Swainson’s hawk, a large owl.  They were all so beautiful.  Most had been injured leaving them unable to be released.  One was abused and the Eurasian Owl on the end had been smuggled into the state.  Below: Barn owl, Harris Hawk, Eurasian Eagle Owl
