Hi All!
Here's a bird I finished right before a show last weekend and the little guy sold!! I'm not sure what kind of bird this is (the feathers are blue and orange), but if anyone out there is a bird enthusiast, I'd love to know! He had such a fun posture and was so darn cute, I just had to scratch him!

It is a 5x7, reference image is from PMP.

Thanks for looking!

Hi Melissa,

Blue head, blue wings and tail, and orange breast, right? If so, it's a blue bird. If the chin is blue and the upper back orangey blue, it's a Western bluebird, if the chin is orange and the back just blue, it's an Eastern bluebird.
Looks like a young one, so these colors may vary a little, but the colors and the bill sure say "Bluebird"

Thanks Rodman!
Thank you for the help on the breed Becky! I'll have to look at some photos of the different kinds online and see if I can figure it out!
Thank you Sue!

Great and cute little puff ball.

He's very cute! Well done :-)
I think he might be a European Robin. They often have that "puffy" look and have slate blue & orange on them.

He is so cute, no wonder someone had to take him home.
