Black and white digital drawing of a raptor-like songbird perched on a branch. It has a black eye stripe, grey head and neck and patterened black-and-white tail feathers. The wing shoulder could either be grey or red, ad the underparts could be white or very slightly pink.

Over on Gemæcce, another in my occasional series of posts about the bynames Hild acquires in both Hild and Menewood. Plus this picture of one of the stabby birds I’ve ben working on, a shrike.
