This morning when I woke, knowing that I did not have oodles of time to delve into the next part of the life-cycle of the American oystercatcher, I followed my HEART to sketches already completed and on my dining room table. So this morning, I continued to follow my whimsey of making a VALENTINE to the American oystercatcher (see Blogtoberfest13 (Day 11)post).
Once again, I am playing with form, shape, and backgrounds. The markings on the oystercatcher eggs and the background of their environment are becoming heart-shaped to complement the heart enclosing the American oystercatcher parents.

Therefore, as I was finishing the image above, I began to see in my mind's eye, that these American oystercatcher parents were talking to their EGG BABIES. They were calling "Wheep, wheep, wheeeeeep," to their young. Jen Hilburn, ornithologist on St. Catherines Island, Georgia, has described their communications to me. So I moved forward to create this image below with the "wheeping" communications:
