Birds

Challenge #3 in the Take a Natural Photo series. Hosted by xpda.
Challenge has finished
Photo Realism. Take a photo of any bird, giving a realistic representation of the bird. Any location is fine: On land, on a plant, underwater, in the air, or on Mars. Any activity is fine: sitting, flying, swimming, or anything else birds do. Take one bird, a whole flock, or anything in between. Virtual bonus points for naming the type of bird. Strive for realism, and use the scene itself rather than digital processing on the camera or PC to create the art.
