It almost looks like a toy bird. Face doesn't look real for some reason, lol.

Hi! I really like this photo - I'm a total bird nerd, and I think quetzals are awesome. :D Could I use this as drawing reference, maybe? I do watercolors of birds (stuff like [link] and [link]), and I thought it would be cool to draw a quetzal sometime. If not, that's okay, though, too. :)
