More Feathered Birds

You've seen this bird previously here. He's gained a headdress and a tail feather. I could not resist using this one duck feather with the same stripe pattern as those on the birds head.

Then I discovered some pheasant feathers that had the same color and pattern as his tail feather.
Then I found these yellow pheasant feathers that reflected the burst pattern on this birds back. Serindipity at work?Here's another view to show off the rest of his body.I take my cue from mother nature and consider the birds with bold showy patterns to be male, while those with quiet subtle ones to be female.

I just love your birds and the way you have displayed them on drift wood. The angles you have placed them are so lifelike. Thanks for your very kind comment on my blog. I spend so much time looking at my work I can't 'see' it anymore and good feedback is very encouraging.
