A Baby Bush-stone Curlew

I came across a family of Bush-stone Curlews at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, the parents were protective but not aggressive, they were keeping their 18 cm chick at a safe distance from people.

Pigments used: top to bottom, Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Perylene Maroon, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber
