Hello! I'd love to do something like this, I've done a lot of pinup art in my time ^_^ My thread is here with some extra info attached, but I'll put some stuff here for convenience' sake. I can do both cutesy chibi-esque stuff and more semi-realism oriented things, whatever your preference is.
I have the first two! They're what allowed me to get into birding more seriously back when I started. I got them when I lived in Spain and there were a lot of parakeets around that I wanted to ID. Man, those things were loud :(
I'm visiting the US later this year and I'd love to see these! It's in Florida, so my greatest wish is to see a roseate spoonbill... They're just so cool, I love their weird naked heads.
I didn't know they walked into town like that, that's pretty funny. There's a place here in Sweden called...
Oh man, I SUCK at identifying the calls! Unless they're really distinct. And it's a really important skill to have, too, since some of them are very rarely seen or only seen in flight. It's a shame that some birds refuse to sit nice and still for you where you can see them clearly >:(
