I did 23 drawings of different birds for this article available on the Columbia Games site. I will discuss just a few of them below.
This owl has a beard. I was thinking it could be called the flying Khuzan (Harnic Dwarves), or something similar. Some believe that they are sent by the dwarves to watch men. Also a good story to be used by parents to scare children that they have to behave because the Khuzan Owl is watching.
