Dead Bird

This was first done in 2014 around the same time as the larger birds, #4. I reworked it in 2016, cleaning it up to a certain extent and darkening the blacks. This is, like the large birds a work of imagination, although based on a relatively common site.

We found this cuckoo on our front porch one evening. It had probably run into one of the windows.
