Happy Lunar New Year. It’s the Year of the Rooster.
This is the rooster at Fort Nisqually. One of the staff asked for a sketch of him and I completed it from my own photo. He is very noisy, constantly crowing all day.

The general image of people in this zodiac sign is of always being hardworking, resourceful, confident and talented. In addition, their active, talkative and engaging ways make them popular with people. They are happiest when they are in company, enjoying the spotlight. Although they were born with enviable skills, they still have several shortcomings, such as being seen as vain and arrogant and a tendency to brag about their achievments.
