Jackdaw was a local rarity in my chidhood. They arrived to Parikkala in late 1990 and now there is few tens of pairs breeding. Neighbours snowy Lindens are one of their favourite spots.

I did not like the righter most bird so I erased it with glass fiber brush.

Now 2/3 or the painting work is done. There is still lots of work in birds, snow and branches.
