Mythological Birds: Hope

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I bet you thought my mythological birds would start with the phoenix, didn't you? HA! Fooled ya! :) I'm trying for the most unusual mythological birds I can find, and you must admit, the Squonk was pretty unusual. 'Hope is the thing with feathers/That perches in the soul...' --Emily Dickinson. Gave this one to my mom for Christmas; I got my love of Dickinson from her, and she loves dull little brown birds, too. I can't tell them apart. But I'd recognize this one if it landed in the feeder! With that coloration, it only barely escaped looking like some kind of bizarre chicken... In case you're wondering, it's sitting on snow--a reference to 'I've heard it in the coldest land'. Prisamcolor (Scholar) colored pencil.
