dear kookaburra...



... i L-O-V-E you.

one of the great things about going to the zoo is you get to meet animals you've only ever seen in books before.
and let me tell you, no book ever made this little guy look so amazing.



this bird is brown and blue and all kinds of perfect.
i came home eager to paint and draw and a little bit wanting a pet kookaburra.



enjoy the spring and the beautifully re-invented Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, check out the investigation stations and meet a new animal friend for yourself! very inspirational!

My favorite bird as well! I think most illustrators and artists find this guy pretty charming, with that big ol' head of his. SO fun to draw!
