Remarkable Birds

Takahe, an endangered flightless bird found only in New Zealand.

Kagu, Flightless bird with an extraordinary voice, can sound like a cross between a rooster and a puppy!

Black-winged Stilt, have the longest legs relative to their body-length of all the worlds birds.
So there, I wasn't exaggerating!

Just a few sketches I did in ink and watercolour from a beautiful bird book,
Collins Remarkable Birds by Stephen Moss, that a friend gave me.
Thank you J. xxxx
