Sir Squawk is a very dapper Australian magpie who has just recently left the nest. Watch out for your shiny jewellery he likes to help himself to anything precious he can find.
Thanks to Jacqueline Wilson for the wonderful name suggestion 😁
This painting was painted for Operation Gaia. Operation Gaia is hosted by @changelingartist and the Bird Whisperer Project. This weeks theme is Nest, Sir Squawk will be donated to the auction in February to raise money for @audubonsociety 💖 which is a wonderful bird protection agency based in America.
This painting is painted with watercolour on 300gsm HP Fluid watercolour paper.
