When I went to the Field Museum last week for my volunteer shift, I had Dave help me suss out some American Kestrel specimens. I have a commissioned watercolor I am working on of a Kestrel, and so wanted some reference photos of their plumage. I love taking closeup photos of bird feathers. The top two are from an American Kestrel specimen, and the bottom two are from a Horned Grebe that I worked on making in to a specimen later in the day.
