Yellow-breasted Bunting

I have been asked to make a paper yellow-breasted bunting for some naturalistic people to arouse the public's interest to help reduce the speed of extinction of such species......by not eating them as a delicacy. To you western guys, this is weird as who would like to eat these small birds. But in China, this is not the case and we need a wake-up call to the general public, here and up north, about such crisis of extinction of an avian species. O, O, talk too much now.

Well, there's no template for this kind of bird so I browsed on the net and found a Japanese sparrow offered as free download by Yamaha. And here it goes, after a little photoshop changes and primitive non-artistic hand painting, this little bird will be sitting by me while I do my thing.

Raspera (Peramodel2) have a Yellow-throated Bunting if that's the same bird, but Your repainted Sparrow actually looks better than their offering. Yours doesn't have a crest though.

I collect paper bird models from all over the world. I'd appreciate it if you would quote the url for the sparrow you based this on ... so I can check if there are any birds there that I don't have. A copy of your re-paint would be nice too.

He is using the sparrow from the Yamaha site as his basis

Cheers Rick. Yes I do already have that one. I was just checking in case there were any more that I'd not seen.
