Bird a Day #8

The Lady Ross's Turaco.
I've had a love for this bird ever since I had a way too close encounter with one. At the Denver Zoo, in bird world all sorts of birds are flying and walking around. It's an amazing place to experience gorgeous birds without a cage or glass in front of you. I often spend a lot of time drawing in there (they have a few benches spread throughout the building). One day while I was drawing this bird, he decided to hop onto the bench next to me and proceed to hop closer and closer. Needless to say, it freaked me out and I left rather quickly. But since then I've loved watching these birds (from farther away). Their faces/beaks are rather colorful so maybe at a later date I'll do a colored version.
