Note: All scans here are reduced in size. The original sketchbook pages are 9 x 12 inches, which is a bit bigger than my scanner. The scans are slightly clipped at the edges; if I get access to a large-format scanner, I'll redo the scans.

1972 Sketchbook, page 6: May 19, "An Unfortunate Rose-Breasted Grosbeak."

(Friends of mine found this male grosbeak dead on the ground outside their house; apparently he had hit their window. They invited me over to make study sketches.)
