Fig. 62 of the Sermonibus Animalis series. This Rain Quail is a most fearsome creature, with shadowy wings and plumage of gothic black and white, it's no wonder he dabbles in the art of necromancy. Other birds fly south for the winter, this one assembles an army of the undead. I guess everyone needs a hobby...
