I have heard it said, that you are not a real artist until you have drawn a dead bird. Well I have a soft spot for animals and I find it sad when they die, so I don't think I will ever draw a dead bird. So I did a quick study of Perceville the Pigeon (pictured above.)
Today I was working on my art when my mom commented that out cat was hunting a pigeon, then she screamed "ohh she got it it's hurt, go save it, go save it." so my brother and I ran out to save it... My brother risked scratches as he pulled the cat away from the pigeon and I picked the pigeon up, he had suffered an injured wing. so we brought him inside, and are nursing him back to health. We named him Perceville, and hopefully he will recover soon! In the mean time he makes a very good model so you may see more study's of him.
P.S. does any one know how to take care of a pigeon?
