This illustration of a King Vulture (Sarcoramphus papa) was completed on January 10, 2018. This drawing is based on a photograph I took at the Los Angeles Zoo in 2016. Though I have seen the species plenty of times in the wild, I have never obtained photographs of a wild bird.
This illustration of a Black-crowned Night-Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) was completed on December 8, 2017. The drawing is based on a photo I took during a colonial waterbird nesting survey in Marina del Rey, Los Angeles County, California in September 2017.
