FC 39 - For the Birds

This comic is for bird nerds*. If you aren't a bird nerd, you probably won't get it, at least not right off the bat. Maybe you will. I don't know you. For the non-bird nerds in the audience, I've left a bit of an explanation in the comments section below.

I really like how this one turned out, both graphically and otherwise. It feels good when a mini-project comes together so nicely (even if it did take way longer than it should have). Maybe one of these days I will do a comic out on paper. Perhaps it would allow me to be less finicky about details and technical conundrums (anti-aliasing vs. non) and complete a comic in less than 4 hours. For now, however, I enjoy my Paint Shop Pro 5.0. Besides, you would not want to see my free hand interpretation of a bald eagle.

The olive-sided flycatcher's call is distinct in the bird world. It sounds like the bird is saying "Quick, three beers!". It is one of the few bird calls I know. The other one is "cheeseburger, cheeseburger", but I don't remember what bird that is from.

Good call, R. Mama. These birds are easily identified in the field by the bright ketchup colored feathers around their beak, usually found sitting on the wires around fastfood parking lots.

Har har, ladies. I was thinking of the Black-capped Chickadee.1
