RR 1: Birds

Probably the Stork-Billed Kingfisher (Pelargopsis Capensis), watercolour. From an album of 51 drawings of birds and mammals made at Bencoolen, Sumatra, for Sir Stamford Raffles. Illustrated by J Briois. Originally published in 1824.

Such a cute little bird, this is for a round robin of course and what an appropriate theme ;)
