Watercolor Birds #8: Pine Warbler

I intended to paint a Carolina chickadee, but then I noticed this yellow bird on my morning walk, so decided to ID it and paint it. I'm not 100% sure the bird I saw was a pine warbler, but it's a fair possibility.
Anyway, I had some major problems with the feet. As you can see, I had to resort to defining them with a pen. Also had problems with the wing, which I hadn't made wide enough and had to enlarge. One must draw well before painting! Forty two birds to go!
