EDIT: Voting is over! You can see the birds chosen at the link below!

I've been working on a huge project for the past month, and today I can finally make an official announcement!

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology asked me to illustrate a coloring book, with 40 of America's favorite birds.  They've already chosen 15 'top' birds, but in order to make this a true "America's favorite birds' book, they've set up a voting page for the public to help pick which birds will be in the coloring book:

academy.allaboutbirds.org/amer…

If you don't see your favorite bird, take a look at the list at the very bottom of the page, which contains those 15 chosen birds that automatically will be included.  Also, you can write in a species that's not listed for voting if you sign up for the Cornell Lab newsletter (there's a button at the bottom of the page to sign up).  Plus, you will be entered to win one of 50 free coloring books, AND get a free Great Horned Owl coloring page (which is an example of the lineart that will be inside the book).

I'll post more information throughout the year with more information on the book, including when and where you can get it!  It will likely be available in bookstores nationwide.  Also, this is going to be a very high-quality coloring book, so not only will it be full of gorgeous birds with plants to color, but you'll be able to color these with a wide variety of wet and dry media.

Winter Woods - Leather Hawk Mask by windfalcon
Winter Woods - Leather Hawk Mask
I love winter. I love the dead grays and rich browns and the texture of all the trees no longer hidden by leaves.  This hawk is the winter woods before the first snow.

This mask is available here - www.etsy.com/listing/263146884…

Hand-carved and shaped 7 oz. leather, painted with acrylics.

Silo by windfalcon
Silo
Silo was a barn owl at Horizon Wings who we sadly lost this year. She lived much longer than wild barn owls usually do, reaching 19 years old! She helped us with programs and had a happy life in a spacious aviary with her own heat lamp to keep her warm in the winter months.

Corbin by windfalcon
Corbin
Corbin the American Crow is a permanent resident at Horizon Wings, due to permanent injuries he suffered as a nestling. The strange, flared feathers on his right wing are an odd effect of the injuries to that wing. Every season, he molts them out and they grow anew, all splayed up and out like his own personal fashion accessory.

You have some really good work here in your gallery........protect me is beautiful and more so because of the way you talk about how you were feeling that day.......I sometimes do some of my best work when I'm feeling upset and then the involvement and distraction of your work takes over......

Your art is stunning - I hope to get something from your Etsy shop soon :) Trying to save for a new camera, but those feather necklaces are soo tempting - and I don't even wear jewelry.
