So the Common Grackle that I did about a year ago, and made his beak into a honking huge thing, then remade the beak and didn't like how it sat, then I cut the whole piece in half and took out the offending parts. Here it is all finished and ready to gallery mount.
Now I think it is fine - not fantastic, just fine and it is passable per my standards. In other words, I'm done and glad about it. :)
