As the air warms, some birds in my area have begun to searching for good nesting sites.

We have a pair of nesting Great Horned Owls in a nearby Douglas Fir. What a wonderful treat to listen to the male call to his mate as she incubates her eggs, and hear her response.

Remembering a backyard nest, and memories of Easter egg gathering motivated me to paint this subject.

Hidden Nest, watercolor, 21″ x 21″. It is for sale, and may be seen at my home during the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour on April 20-22.
