the wings after I spraypainted them. Here the colour might seem a little too bright red, but trust me, it turned out great!

American Coots swim like ducks, but they do not have the webbed feet of that species. Their toes have broad lobes of skin that allow it to easily move through water. The lobes fold back when the bird lifts its foot while walking to facilitate moving on dry land, but it still supports the bird's weight on muddy land. Nine American Coots were found in Central Park in this year's Bird Count.

Nicobar Pigeon, fantastic!! So Asia & islands (Nicobar Island), mostly ground dwelling. Closest living relative to the extinct Dodo.

The Golden-fronted Leafbird (Chloropsis aurifrons) is a species of leafbird. It is a common resident breeder in India, Sri Lanka, and parts of Southeast Asia. by hiker1974, via Flickr

I started with the dress. It's a classic German drindl dress, and the colours (eventhough the top here appears to be purple) match the colours of Lyca the bird.

Because the wings I have are too 'dark angel' (black angel wings) I decided it was time to brighten them up by using this specific colour, which is more dark than seen here. I'm going to spray paint those black wings and am going to turn them into beautiful bird wings.
