    Every spring I watch the live bird cams from Cornell University. For several years we have been able to watch Ezra and Big Red, a pair of red tail hawks, raise a family. It is so amazing to view them so closely and to see what dedicated parents they are. I did some rough sketches of Ezra one day when he was sitting the nest and turned them into this more completed drawing later in the studio. He is such a beautiful bird and such a good dad.
