If You Give a Bird a Peanut / by Julia Walck

This is Bob. I know his name because the worker in the Desert Garden Conservatory feeds him peanuts on the daily and calls him over using his first name.

Bob is a Scrub-Jay. These birds have such distinct colors about them... their white necks, and deep, azure blue feathers are beautiful. 

I snapped this shot of Bob pre-peanut snack. He was being a bit of a ham posing for the camera, I just had to draw him!
