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.

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.

So cute. I love it. The story behind it is really nice too!
I was watching a clip of dog-wheelchairs too not too many months ago. Small world.
