Maybe not a prize winner, but I like the spirit of freedom in this one. I made it very soon after buying the Hyacinth Macaw.

Nice image! smile  Was it meant to be an entry in the contest… or just to share? If it was an entry, please use the entry form on my website.

I do have the first entry posted now smile

Well, just to share for now, I guess. (I confess, I hadn’t read the entry rules when I posted it.)  Maybe I’ll rerender it larger and enter it later - unless I can come up with something newer and better before the deadline. smile

hmmm… never had a request for those before…  Eventually I will do a Motherhood2 and probably 3 and that’s where I’d probably include turkey chicks.  I already have the Motherhood chicks done with webbed feet— but felt they needed “fluff” for volume 2 and that’s been the goal of “2” (whenever I get time and ambition to finish it).  I’ll currently up against a deadline to get all 4 waterfowl volumes (Geese, Loons, Grebes, Ducks and Swans) done by my Audubon sale in April (so that’s my primary focus). I also have revisions of various model bases to add to that.  The Toucan base has undergone some significant changes this week and updates will probably be available next month.

Once beyond the Audubon and 10 year SBRM Anniversary sale, I’ll be free to mix up my project list a little more.  Besides the 5 raptor (Hawks, Falcons, Eagles, etc) volumes… Motherhood2, Hornbills and SBRM Asia will be in play.

I will have a somewhat bird-related product out in the next few weeks… the Elegant Swan (and sorry, the car doesn’t count as an eligible Songbird Remix bird for the contest).

not really looking for a baby, more a juvenile. Here you often see large groups of hens and young birds. And you can’t just scale down adult birds, the juvenile looks completely different, the heads are feathered, and the plumage is lighter and more variegated, almost striped.
Usually see hens with about 50 young juvenile birds, about the size of chickens.

and don’t tell me no one has ever requested it because i have bugged you about it before lol

Wild Turkeys are one of my favorite birds. They are one of the largest birds in our area and its really kool that they will frequent back yard feeders in the winter months. This year I have been super swamped with Turkeys. One day there must have been at least 500 birds in the field next to our apartment. It was really interesting to see. It was not one large group, if you looked closely you could tell that there were several smaller groups of 3 to 25 birds each. The smaller groups would move together though the large massive group. Each group took turns coming to my feeding station. When one group finish and left, the next would come in. Groups of Toms and Jakes would feed first, then the hens and young birds. It was an incredibly organized system.

The older birds are quite nervous and wary of people, but the younger birds are getting used to me and used to the idea that i bring food. The younger birds will come up to me when i am at the feeders, they get as close as 2 feet from me. If the hens see the younger birds too close to me they will attack the young bird, pecking and kicking it until it is far enough away from me that the hen feels its safe. They never go after me, they always go after the young birds. Momma is teaching her babies not to trust strangers lol.

looking forward to the toucan update

Eventually I will… though they are far, far down on the list. The next one-two years are pretty much booked with projects.

this is why the ban on human cloning is so bad, we need extra Kens so we get more birds
