Below you’ll find two webinars and downloadable resources I’ve created to help you learn about the amazing family of birds known as parrots, in honor of World Parrot Day on May 31st!
Endemic Parrots of the Caribbean Workshop
Learn all about parrots in this replay of a live workshop below which I co-led along with BirdsCaribbean Executive Director Lisa Sorenson, and Trinidadian parrot biologist Aliya Hosein that was presented in celebration of the month-long Caribbean Endemic Bird Festival.
First, download the handout that includes high-resolution images of Caribbean parrots for your use in the sketching step-by-step demonstration below.
Next, watch the workshop recording below in which we sketch the Cuban Parrot.
Scarlet Macaw Workshop
In this workshop, we’ll focus on macaws; the showiest and largest members of the beloved parrot family, many of which face extinction in the wild. Then, I’ll lead you through a step-by-step drawing tutorial. We will be sketching the widespread and brilliantly red-colored Scarlet Macaw. You may download the high-resolution scarlet macaw image HERE.
