This was my second sketch from this week's trip to the zoo, and the last one at the bird house. The Macaws were adorable! They looked like two matching bookends. Hyacinth Macaws are the largest of the Macaw family.


  1. Your zoo sketches are wonderful!! The detail to the birds always amazes me. Great job!!! I have to meet you some time when you go.

  2. Joan, it's so kind of you to give me so much support. Thank you very much for your comments.
