No matter. On this cold but sunny afternoon, I was eager to put some color on the page, so I wandered over to one of the zoo’s most colorful spots: the Chilean flamingo exhibit. I’ve sketched the flamingoes several times before, including last July and just about a year ago in April, but I never tire of their bright pink plumage and elegantly long necks. Today a couple of young ones were napping, distinctive with their grayish-brown feathers.
On my way out I walked through the Conservation Aviary, where I did a quick sketch of a Victoria crowned pigeon and its fantastic headdress.
