Grizzly Creek Songbird Northern Mockingbird -Rez or Wear- Version 1.0 Basic

Details Features Contents Reviews (3)


Today's release is by far the "powerhouse" master of North American songbirds, the Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos).

Famous the world over for its ability to mimic just about any sound and incorporate it into their extremely complex songs, the Northern Mockingbird will surprise you every time it vocalizes.
As you listen to it you may recognize certain sounds such as barking dogs, car alarms or even cats meows. When they are interpreted by the versatile Mockingbird they suddenly take on a melodic and shockingly beautiful slant.
After investing countless hours on the visual model itself to bring it to life, a great deal of time was spent on editing and uploading the 31 total clips for your bird. Yes friends that's, THIRTY ONE completely different clips. Each one was carefully screened, filtered and edited individually for quality, clarity and, to insure that every clip was original and distinct.
Each can average 3-5 calls per 10 second clip so that's well into the hundreds of calls that seamlessly blend together.
Our price for the entire package is only 40 Lindens more then the cost of the sound uploads alone, reaffirming that we place a high priority on value for our customers.
We invite you to rez him or wear him and be amazed with his virtuosity and the realism of the model we have tried to bring you.

The basic sets include: Standing, Perching, 24 Hour singers of both as well as a bonus Shoulder Pet version and a sculpted twig perch. 5 Models for one low price.

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

All of 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.

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.

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.
All birds in our Basic Sets are only 3 prims and you can easily add as many as you would like without a large impact on your overall prim load.

Once you try any of the GC Songbirds 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 Second Nature Sets as far above and beyond the accepted standards .
We take pride in our work so that you can take pride in your choice to shop with GC.

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.

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

Great bird!

Grizzly Creek, I can't thank you enough for this wonderful Mockingbird. The sound is great, and is natural, irregular, with pauses. Very realistic. And the bird looks great, and is animated so well. And low prim! Perfect in every way!

Another outstanding work of craftsmanship by Morgan Garret. The variety of songs that this Mocker sings adds the perfect touch to my home and the animations in this and all of his birds is incredible. each and every bird I have bought is a true work of art and they are the best lindens I have spent thus far. You can not go wrong buying your birds from Grizzly Creek.
