Black-capped Lory

Black-capped Lory (Lorius lory) lives in the jungle of New Guinea and its surrounding islands. I saw this bird when I was traveling to Waigeo island in Raja Ampat archipelago. The bird has got beautiful red, blue, black and green colors. It also has got orange bill with some yellow feather in its tail.
Because of its beautiful colour, a lot of people catch the birds and sell them to big cities in Indonesia. I feel sad every time I see bird in a cage. I prefer watching birds in their own habitat to watching them in cages and in the market.

As a tour guide, I have guided hundreds of tourists who want to go birding in West Papua particularly in the rainforest of Sorong regency, Arfak mountains or even to Raja Ampat islands. I provide 10x42 mm binoculars and spotting scopes to enhance the birding experience of my guests. Birds are usually active in the mornings and in the afternoons before sunset.
If you are interested in having birdwatching tour with me in the jungle of West Papua, you could contact me by email to: or whatsapp: +6281332245180.
To create awareness among all of us about the importance of protecting animals, I have just created a drawing of this Black-capped Lory as shown above.
Instead of using coloured pencil or pastel sticks and paper, I used S-pen stylus and the glass screen of Samsung Tab A tablet as my media. So, it is a digital drawing. The principles of drawing are relatively similar. However, I feel that the glass surface of tablet is so flat and slippery. I have to be more careful in drawing lines. The use of digital eraser, the ease of setting brush sizes and colors as well as the superimposition of lines make the digital drawing process faster. Sketching, colouring, hatching are done simultaneously. But I still do manual drawing using pencil and paper regularly.
I hope that you like this bird drawing. Don't forget support this blog by buying some of my other artworks that I made available in my zazzle store at the following links:
