OOPS! I almost forgot to mention, the background leaves used this brush set [link] by *Sammykaye1sStamps as a base and the maple leaves were based on [link] by *ShadyMedusa-stock.

This is absolutely incredible! The primary feathers especially are so well detailed! You got every single detail in the colours right!

I don't know if I should be happy or sad that I was able to name every bird there before reading the artist comments.

Still though, I love digital drawings/photos of even common birds(in the east at least), it reminds me of a similar painting on my wall. :)

You've detailed the birds well, if not, perfectly, and that's all that matters to any bird lover!

Really nice work! The textures are very nice and minimalistic but still very suggestive.

In the thumbnail I thought that the junco was a black phoebe, but the head was different, I'm glad that you have that list there, otherwise my tired eyes would have kept thinking it was a phoebe! Very nice piece! I love the detail that you put into it, I'm so horrible with feathers!

I've never seen a Black Phoebe, myself, but I hope to someday!

When I was a kid there was always a nest right outside my window so I was always able to watch the babies learn to fly, it was so cute! Black Phoebes are all over the place in Northern California, well, not all over the place, but they are fairly common!

Oh I love the colors in this piece. The brownish red bird is my favorite. I like the spot of red on his throat :3
