Bird Love: Pigeon and Cockatoo


The sketch on the left was inspired by a rose-breasted cockatoo (galah), Polly, who was adopted by a friend from a local sanctuary.

On the right is my sketch of a pigeon. Feral pigeons are among the most misunderstood, often vilified, animals. We treat them as pests, and yet we were the ones that had brought them here, domesticating and using them for our own means for centuries. You'd be surprised at how gentle and smart they truly are.
