Wow !!! another beautiful bird, must be something carving on pallet wood, it is either destroying on the gouges or the fingers, but the end result is what we are looking for, and you made it once more, if you have a chance tell us about the size, bravo.

Dig it! I especially like the feather texture on the wings. It’s like icing on a cake.
