Oaxacan Hummingbird, Stage 1!

^ The bill is the first part colored.


^ The crown is next; impressed feather textures at front.


^ Colored the impressed lines for contrast.


^ Next: the frill. I used the Frilled Coquette hummingbird as inspiration.


^ 'Cheek' feathers finished.


^ Throat (called a gorget (GORE-jet) on males) finished.


^ Flanking throat feathers done.
