Artwork: Green Jay in Prismacolor pencil

The spectacular Green Jay (Cyanocorax incas) was one of the birds I went to Texas to see. Once we spotted them, there was no getting rid of them – just like the jays I’m familiar with in the Northeast, they are bold, noisy, and not at all averse to begging for handouts from a picnic dinner! They were so strikingly beautiful (in plumage if not voice) that I went straight back to our cabin and started drawing.
