Straw-headed bulbul (Pycnonotus zeylanicus)

I am excited to share that Nature Society (Singapore) requested me to paint a Straw-headed bulbul as a token of appreciation for Mr Desmond Lee, the Minister for National Development. He was the Guest of Honour for the 36th Singapore Bird Race 2020.
It was an honour and privilege to paint this bird which is a globally critically endangered species due to poaching for the pet bird trade. Singapore is perhaps the last stronghold for the Straw-headed Bulbul, thanks to the conservation efforts by the local authority.
