Hi everyone. i’ve been working on a cross-stitch design for the wall hanging that sandry made and gave to tris in the circle of magic books. my only problem is i need to design one more bird but i can’t decide what bird to do. i tried designing a parrot but that was a bit too much effort. does anyone have any cool ideas for what my 6th bird could be?

edit: here is the complete pattern

Interesting and unusual that you’ve chosen almost entirely North American birds -pileated woodpecker, blue jay, ruby throated hummingbird, flamingo. And then the toucan is South American I believe. Seeing as Emelan seems pseudo Europe I would personally favour Euroasian birds. Might be nice to see a heron or egret in there. Or kingfisher.

Well, considering the only bird mentioned in the book is the toucan and it is a central american bird, i feel like it is canonical that sandry has seen birds from the americas. Whether it is in menageries or she went to the americas, sandry has seen birds from there.

i personally head canon that she made this hanging in response to seeing these birds when traveling with her parents. The flamingo from her travels to africa, the peacock from india, and the red throated hummingbird, the bluejay, the toucan and the ivory-billed woodpecker from the americas. 

I didn’t mean to offend you, it was just an interesting pattern I noticed.
