Left Handed Sketch 79

Never heard of this pretty bird before, it is a Montezuma oropendola.

Really wanting to start etching some birds, but probably not a good idea but hopefully I can start an etching soon since I am going to go see some raptors in a few weeks and hopefully will get lots of pictures I can use. 


  1. Well knock me down with a feather and call me Loretta!....Would you believe I have one of their nests in my collection! I had a shock when I saw the name. I followed your link to make sure and yep...I have one.
    Love his eye - placed just right.

  2. Usually associate the word Montezuma with "revenge" or "to the shores of Tripoli." But seriously, this is a pretty bird. Love your sweet sketch.

  3. I love the feel of motion in this one Jennifer.

  4. What a wonderful bird sketch, it definitely looks like it's in motion.

  5. Julie or Loretta ;), very cool you have one of the nests :) would love to have stuff like that :)
