Flights Around the World by ThePotatoStabber Flights Around the World by ThePotatoStabber
This is a gift for :iconilenai: from the amazing :iconartcrossing: group!

Helena said she loves culture and wants to travel the world.. so I designed a Native-American-style fascinator using feathers of national birds of countries around the world :)
(I tried to sketch them as accurately as possibly but I'm not at all a bird-expert so I apologise for inaccuracies!)

National Bird feathers include:
•Kiwi – New Zealand
•Green Pheasant - Japan
•Little Owl - Greece
•Korean Magpie – South Korea
•Bald Eagle – United States
•Peacock - India
•Gallic Rooster - France
•White-tailed Eagle - Germany
•Caribbean Flamingo - Bahamas
•Barn Swallow - Estonia
•Himalayan Monal - Nepal
•Chukar Partridge – Iraq/Pakistan

Thank you again, it's amazing! :heart: And don't worry about accuracy, I've never seen any of these birds "live" :D
