Two more bird studies from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. I’m not sure what the bird on the left is, but that’s an owl on the right. I visited the museum on a field trip with my 482A Life Drawing class from UCLA.
From Winter Quarter, 2007.
I believe the bird on the left is a Secretary-Bird, Sagittarius Serpentarius, due to the long hook on the beak and the crest-feathers in back.
