This is my entry for the core prompt challenge Thursday Prompt: Fly Like a Bird
I decided to take the opportunity to draw some of my favorite birds and their wonderful wings.  Found a Northern Flicker in by back yard yesterday, they are really beautiful birds!  

Did you know that most of the time when a bird hits a window, it's just stunned.  You can save its life by picking them up (be mindful to support their head) and keeping them warm until it they come back to their senses.  I've revived a lot of birds over the years
, robins, sparrows, finches even a hummingbird once.  There's something magical about having a bird take flight out of your hands.

Also, shout out to the rat owl gif i.imgur.com/zAzvz.gif  which is one of my favorite things in the world XD

Done with dip pen and in with watercolor and coffee.  Small touches up on a computer.  

Comments, questions or constructive critiques are greatly appreciated ^^

Very nice. I love the wings. And I really need to look into getting the ink you have for inking. I have pens currently, and they're great if I wanna ink away from home, but I love the look of your ink. And your inking, but I can't buy your inking.
