A VISIT OF THE SILVEREYES, Watercolor Painting Birds and Cottage Garden

Silvereyes come to my garden very often every summer.  They came in small flock to check on the flowers for a few seconds and took off in a flash.  Their movement is continuous, twist, turn, clinging upside down, dropping from one branch to another like a leaf..  They are fun to watch.  A colorful cottage style garden and lively little birds are an ideal subject for painting to cheer up any dark moment in life from new born onward.  Never be too young or too old to count birds and touching flowers!  They make me happier all the time!
Silvereye is an attractive small bird 11 to 13 cm in length and around 10 g in weight.  Generally, it has a noticeable ring of white feathers around its eye, olive-green wings and either a grey or olive-green back, a lighter coloured throat - yellow or grey, flanks that range from chestnut to pale buff, and an undertail that may be white or yellow.
