Dove in the Dead Tree

I have an apricot tree that has died.  I decided to leave it in my yard so that the birds could use it.  And I could photograph them.  Well it fell over.  Now it is just a dead tree.

Before the tree fell, I was able to get a few photos of some Dove perched in the branches.  Here is one that I decided to draw in graphite.  It's in my Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook.  5x8 inches or 10 by 16 inches for a double page.  This one took just over a page.
