Watching the Ae’o
Yesterday we visited the Kealai Ponds Refuge near Kihie. We brought our binoculars and set about seeing what bird life we could find. The Black-Necked Stilts (ae’o) were prolific, along with Golden Plovers, Sanderlings, and Black Crowned Night Herons. Unfortunately my sketchbook stayed in the car, but the camera did travel out on the boardwalk. I played with some images this morning.
Nothing like the birds I’ve worked on before. Those legs are so long!
The sketches were made in an A5 book with B pencil.
