a flock of birds

It’s a great time to flock to Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. An hour’s drive north of California’s state capital, the refuge provides critical habitat to migrating waterfowl. Duck and geese numbers peak in November and December with huge groups filling the sky. It’s an amazing experience, and another great reason to #OptOutside.

Concept:

Harpies, except instead of being your typical birds of prey they’re mixed with other bird species.

Flocks of duck harpies chilling in lakes together. Peacock and Birds of Paradise harpy boys having fab-offs trying to impress potential partners. Tiny hummingbird harpies fluttering around causing mischief with faeries. Goose harpies chasing around and honking at fucking everyone.

Okay so we have this rusty old thing in our one flower bed that would make an awful noise when you turned it and Buck Buck absolutely hated the sound of it, freaking out every time, wanting to somehow fight it??? Anyway I haven’t turned the Sphere of Rage for several years now and figured I’d see if it can still work its great and terrible magic.

  • chickens: jesus CHRIST we gotta consume this as quickly as possible and shove the LARGEST pieces down our throats lmao what is pacing??? what is choking??? what is tearing off a small piece supposed to do??? waste of time
