#528 In the field: Brookgreen Gardens workshop, con't . . .

Start this series with  #522,  April 16, 2014.

This blog post is another review requested by my workshop students 
and I hope collectors and bird lovers enjoy it as well.

A bird's feathers grow in sets and groups and the bird artist must know how both body feather groups 
and flight feathers are arranged.  Feathers grow in tracks in orderly rows, and overlap like 
shingles on a roof.  Plumage patterns are organized in a similar manner across all species.

Below, these photos were take at Brookgreen Garden's aviary.
