World of Birds 3 - Secretary by rieke-b World of Birds 3 - Secretary by rieke-b
Watercolours.
One of the most peculiar and, in my opinion, most beautiful birds of prey.

It was a lot of fun painting this one!

Sekretär, Secretary bird, Sagittarius serpentarius

Is it just me or have these birds become rather popular lately?
I see why though.
Greatly drawn. :)

Great painting! These are gorgeous birds. The San Diego Zoo has a couple and I love watching them.
