Sketching at the Raptor Center
I led a small group at the Raptor Center this morning for Audubon. It was a beautiful morning and the miserable wind had died down.
split up and walked quietly around the center. I drew the great horned owl and as I was walking back to where the Harris’s hawk is a burrowing owl perched very close, looking up and all around.
As we were about to leave a turkey vulture landed on a snag between the Raptor Center and the creek. One of the volunteers said it was probably a bird they had recently released. We all sketched it for quite a while until it took off, joining a couple of soaring vultures.
