Monty is a friendly local Kookburra that visits my home and studio on the NSW Far north coast. He flies in and studies me from the balcony railing, with his large curious eyes taking it all in. Not at all shy, he’s even flown inside for a look around a couple of times. I love his perfectly balanced pose in this drawing. For a big bird he’s very light on his feet.
