Yep ... Were doing it again...another free one. Thanks to the many kind words and positive response to our free European Tree Sparrow it has convinced me to let another one go for all of you to enjoy no charge and on the house.
This time it is a rather unique little bird, an African finch called the Cut-Throat Finch (Amadina fasciata). Also known as the Ribbon Finch, Bearded Finch and the Weaver Finch. They travel in vast flocks all across the mainland of Africa. While not a very dynamic singer, Morgan has included all of the primary variations of sound this little bird makes alone. A thanks again to all who have become great friends of GC and we hope you enjoy another gift to you from us.

This is NOT a reduced functionality or "demo" banner sporting bird. This is the real deal, "on the house".

--------About the Birds-----------

Our birds will all add a very high level of realism to your home, forest, garden or sim. They are built with the specific purpose of giving you the highest quality, most unique and best value of any on the grid.

Hundreds of hours have been invested in putting these birds together as a part of our "Second Nature" Collection. A new line of Grizzly Creek products built specifically to bring the wilderness into digital space.

Textures: Each one is carefully sculpted in Blender and every texture from butt to beak is hand painted over a high resolution photograph. This eliminates seams, bleeding, blurriness, over saturation, "cartoonyness" and any of the other myriad of mapping issues, purely photo based textures suffer from.

Animation:
Our songbirds use all three primary forms of animation. Sculpt- To produce a bird which naturally looks around and tilts its head quizzically.
Texture - Using texture flipping to have each bird blink its eyes naturally .
Prim - This rounds out the animation by randomly having each bird assume a unique body posture.
Because each of them relies on some sculpt based animation it can be actually built as many as 9 times to produce a new sculpt map for each pose the he/she may adopt at any time.

Our prim based animation adds an additional level of movement that you would expect from a living creature. Your bird may shift its weight, bend over to look at something on the ground or up at the sky all in a completely random manner, rarely producing the same posture combination at any given time. This eliminates the mechanical repetitive feel that is usually the case. We made a very concerted effort to avoid the famous "drinking bird" effect that seems to be very common amongst most of the small birds made today.

Sounds:
The sounds used for all our birds songs are species specific and NEVER generic. They are derived from high quality recordings made by the builder himself or obtained from various sources including close friends and acquaintances in the ornithology departments of several major universities. Each clip is unique and may contain as many as 3-5 songs per clip. We have also taken into account regional variations, and put them in as well.

Prims:
Each bird in our Basic Sets is only 3 prims and you can easily add as many as you would like without a large impact on your overall prim load.

Scripting:
All of the scripting was designed to be as low lag as possible so you can rez multiple birds without any major impact to your sim speed.

Conclusion:
When added to your environment we think you will immediately see the difference. Not only are we bringing you a product on a level of excellence rarely seen but we also are giving you FAR more value for your investment then any other comparable bird. We invite you to compare our birds with any others available and we will stand behind the Grizzly Creek Songbirds.
There really are far more features and considerations we really don't have the room to list (believe it or not) here so feel free to review the documentation and just dig right in and and play with the models.

Coming Soon:
Keep checking back with the GC store here for future releases. We already have well over 30 additional songbirds from Chickadees to Mockingbirds, Finches, Sparrows, Jays, etc, etc, that are being tested before posting to the store. We will be offering our latest songbirds regularly and in no time you can build an impressive collection, all for the same low price and guarantee of quality and precision.

Also coming is an Intermediate and a Deluxe Collection for each species that will, among other things, roam the ground searching for food or flap its wings and dart away and back again. These packages will contain all previous versions and will be priced accordingly.

We are VERY excited about this new line and think you will be also once you try any of them.
