because it is such an old legend or creation, i figured that it had some sort of common references or inspirations not just any bird. It probably is hundreds of years old at this point if not more.
i doubt they are using humming bird or dove wings, but its as i said every image seems to be different enough that I dont see much in common, but similar enough that they seem to be possibly based on one or two things. Possibbly just poorly.
ill look up some illustrations. im having a lot of trouble figuring out what shape the feathers should be, and what their prientation because of the issues above. is there an animal thread here ever?
