Anna's Hummingbird Tail Sonation



Be sure to see my art on my new site! [link]

For CSUMB's Science Illustration Graduate Program: form and function assignment.

Also for BioIllustration's :iconbioillustration: contest: 1. Create an illustration in the scientific style highlighting an organism's unique or unusual characteristic.

Here I demonstrate the male Anna's Hummingbird spreading his tail at the bottom of his display dive to produce his signature "chirp" sound, which was originally thought to be vocal!

See supplemental videos of it here: [link] and [link]

Created in photoshop with the pen (vector) and brush tools, based on my own sketches. Made a clay model of the bird to help with the angle too!

Wow. Great art, and I learned something new! I always thought that it was a vocalization!
