Spixies are so beautiful... I'm glad their numbers are rising.

It's a Spix's... There's just something special about them, their unique looks and coloration among all the species of parrots, their sadly endangered, almost desperate status on the brink of the extinction and the fact that you very, very rarely get to see even an image of them. They're almost mythical creatures, and therefore suit very well in a picture like this. Wonderful work, I keep on admiring. :nod:

Stop teasing me with this card set. I love how you drew him grasping the knife.
