Frogmouths, Nightjars & Goatsuckers are on their way

Songbird ReMix Tawny Frogmouth

First texture WIP test for the Tawny Frgmouth

I've put aside my Asian bird project in order to start developing the models I need for my October release "Frogmouths, Nightjars and Goatsuckers".  They are camouflage experts and often mistaken for a tree limb; they need to because they're day sleepers and active only at night.

In the US, I think most people known them by their common names, poor-wills or whip-poor-wills, though I doubt few have actually seen them. We've been lucky enough to have several common poor-wills visit our yard at dusk. They work with the bats, feeding on flying insects.

Why do I think this is a Halloween release? Apart from being related to owls (which I think is a Halloweenish bird) and hanging out with bats, The name of the set "Frogmouths, Nightjars & Goatsuckers" refers to the bird version of Chupacabra.

Real Birds: Ocean-based species populations are crashing

by TakePart

Imagine the outcry if half the life on land had disappeared over the past 45 years.   That’s what has happened in the world’s oceans, according to a new report that finds that global populations of marine species have plummeted 49 percent since 1970. 

Certain fish that people rely on for food suffered even steeper declines: Populations of tuna, bonito, and mackerel dropped by 74 percent, according to the study, which was compiled by the World Wildlife Fund and reviewed by researchers at the Zoological Society of London. By compiling data from 2,337 individual sources, including population estimates from scientific studies and databases, the researchers were able to estimate the changes in species populations from 1970 to 2012. The scientists attributed the marine population crash to overfishing, habitat destruction, and climate change. In other words, the blame lies with us.
