Wilson's Bird of Paradise - Cincinnurus respublica
October 23, 2007
This little bird of paradise will be flying aaaaaalll of the way to Mexico City to live with someone there. I created this in trade for a piece of this very talented artist's work. I have gotten some of my favorite art by way of barter! Wilson's blue cap is not feathers but bald, with the exception of the black outlines across the crown. It is said that the blue skin is so vivid that it can be seen at night. The curly tail feathers have violet and silver. I swear I did not make this bird up.
