Spring warblers

So many things waiting to be scanned and uploaded,  but first: some little watercolors of warblers. This is the first year I've had in ages to really go look at birds in Central Park. I did these partly to help learn the details on them so I could ID them in silhouette at the tops of trees, but also because... well, look at them. They're awesome subjects.

These are drawn from reference, but I've seen all these (and many, many more) in Central Park this season.

The one up above is a Blackburnian warbler. In order below are the hooded warbler, the Wilson's warbler, the black-throated blue warbler, and the black-throated green warbler.
