Check out this painting done of me by Casey Girard

A talented artist from California named Casey Girard asked me if they could paint a portrait of me. I was honoured!. Casey drew me with my favourite bird the dark-morph Rough-legged Hawk. 

This was done as part of Casey's series in celebration of Black Birders who have made a difference in their communities so I was truly honoured to be part of it. You can check out some of the other Black Birders that Casey has painted HERE at Casey's instagram account.
