I like having plenty of time to study the bird and yet I still can't get it right. But that comes down to patience, I think. The idea of drawing something in the field that will fly away is pretty daunting but I'm looking forward to learning some tricks that will make it easier. I just realized, looking at this bird and knowing what I know about birds in general, that they often have their weight a little forward when they land so they're ready to fly off again. The eyeball is a tricky area and the key to getting a drawing right.
