Nice score Sidewing… they are some very beautiful birds. I enjoy folks getting 'nice' things, be it birds or gear. A true bird lover, for reasons unknown to me, seems to deprive themselves of the very thing that they enjoy, and is the goal of the whole thing anyway. I very much like it when people step over that line in the 'mind' and achieve a goal. I think we should be kinder to ourselves, and stop being so hard on your own person. Heck there are lots of folks whom will step up and 'wack' you, no need to do it yourself.
So I will be watching for the updates and the successes as you go, a bit of bad luck seems to shadow good, but we hope that these birds are a homerun for you Sidewing. I have a big smile for you today, that might carry over till the morrow.
Best to you and your new birds,
Thank you RJ! I do feel like I cheated a bit, but in truth I don't know how long it would have taken me to develop a line of birds like this or if I even could have without a great example of what they should be to start with.
