It's a day late. Sorry. A pencil sketch using several different pencil densities (2B, 4B, 6B). Yes, I see this animal every day. I do research on how these guys learn about the environment (spatial memory) as a biological model for dementia and aging. So I do homing work, and some behavoral work in the lab in a small arena. It's a living. I will say that pigeons (Columba livia) are a LOT more messy than my original bird species of study- the white-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys). Poo from a songbird is much more preferable to deal with than the poo generated by pigeons. Ick.
