Second Chance by Risachantag Second Chance by Risachantag
This little bird, bizarre as it may look, is a tawny frogmouth (Wikipedia page). I love seeing them at the zoo, they have the most expressive faces. They spend the majority of their day pretending to be a log ([link]), which makes them pretty good models if you're trying to sketch them!

This was inspired by watching clips of dog-wheelchairs for injured pets, I'd love to see prosthetic wings some day in the future.

Hi, I bought this print at SMASH! (It was the only one I bought during the convention and I walked through the lot.) It was my first time seeing it (and your art) but it really touched my heart and I probably should have let you know in person. I have spent quite a lot of my time rescuing wildlife and it always hurts me to take them to a vet only to be said they must be put down because it's too "difficult" to repair them or that they would be disabled after recovery and not suited for life back in the wild. One day maybe all animals would be afforded the same kindness as those dogs in wheelchairs. That is my hope.

Omg he's adorable! :3 Though, reading that they try to look like logs just makes me want to call him Peeta, heheh.

Reminds me of Zane and his falcon from Ninjago masters of spinjitsu. Yes Zane is a nindroid.
