Saker and barn owl

 Saker falcon. I spent last week on the west coast of Ireland, fitting in time at 2 bird of prey centres to do some life drawing studies for college. I worked up this from my sketches and photographs when I got back.
Barn owl. Always a popular subject of mine when I get a rare opportunity like this. This was drawn at the bird of prey centre at the Ailiwee caves in Co. Clare. Some fantastic birds here also included Bateleur eagle, ural and great grey owls, white tailed eagle, burrowing owls... Could spend several days at  a place like this!
