I wasn't sure if this one was going to come together. I had to do the background colour twice. First time round, I made it too light so when I started the bird, it just didn't look right. So I redid the background colour and made it a lot darker. I am rather pleased how it eventually turned out. These birds can be found across Europe and Asia
