Drawing birds, plants and trees in Rotterdam Zoo

White-rumped Shama

They are very curious...

They give me good ideas...

Von der Decken's Hornbill came to have a look, 
when I was drawing a Red-billed Leiothrix.

Sketching this new visitor...

Red-billed Leiothrix and the tree.

Red-billed Leiothrix was the only one in the greenhouse 
and was always with other birds, 
such as here with a Common Emerald Dove in her nest.

Crowned Lapwing

Juni and Juli at the Greenhouse: a lot of young birds

There were two Toco Toucans in the incubator, born on 12 June. 

It was nice to see and sketch their development.

And Gentoo Penguins also had young this year.
