Roller Contrast ♥️♥️♥️
The Indian roller is a member of the roller bird family. It occurs widely from West Asia to the Indian Subcontinent. It is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List. It is best known for its aerobatic displays of males during the breeding season.....
Lunchtime rush as white-backed vultures swoop in for a feast. These guys are huge, standing at about a metre tall with a wingspan of 2.2m. They roost in dead trees and in traditional folklore it's thought the trees help them to dream of death and to predict where to find carcasses. From my trip to the Hoedspruit area last week
🇬🇧I've been so busy these past weeks that I barely had time to draw anything. For those who may not know, in a few weeks its the Worldwide Bird Day, a date that I use to spend with my father and the amazing people of @seo_birdlife doing different activities related to nature observation and preservation. So, to relax from this days of hard work, I decided to do some quick sketches of the four species of vultures that live in Spain. This animals are seriously threatened by the use of some kinds of medicines on the cattle they eat that are mortal for the vultures. So this time is as good as any other to remind that we should take care of our planet, not just as individuals but as a society. 🇪🇦He estado estas semanas tan ocupada que apenas he podido dibujar. Para los que no lo sepáis, dentro de poco es el Día Mundial de las Aves, una fecha que suelo pasar con mi padre y los miembros de @seo_birdlife haciendo actividades relacionadas con la observación y conservación de la naturaleza. Por ello, para relajarme de estos días de duro trabajo, decidí hacer unos bocetos rápidos de las cuatro especies de buitre que habitan en España. Estos animales están seriamente amenazados por el uso de ciertos tipos de medicamentos en el ganado que comen que son mortales para los buitres. Así que este momento es tan bueno como cualquier otro para recordar que debemos cuidar de nuestro planeta y su biodiversidad no solo como individuos, sino como sociedad también.
By far the best part of having birds is using them to educate and bring joy to children. Everywhere we take them, without fail, somebody falls in love! It’s an amazing opportunity to connect with others and share with them the beauty of creatures we typically may not see as loving, intelligent, or worthy of family time and attention. Whitini and Rio are both potential future therapy birds who learn to be social through their interactions with people. Rio is most comfortable with children and women, and Whitini has never been outside prior to yesterday, but seems to take to children as well (which is great, because they also take to her)! Both are being worked with for future harness training because we do not wish to clip wings anymore, or to continue the trend for birds who come to us clipped.

A Juvenile Swainson's Hawk in flight. Captured this just outside of Frank Lake Alberta, Canada. Great area to see birds. More later.
