Still within the confines of Chapter 3. The Mouse tries to get everyone dry by telling a "dry" (boring) tale and it doesn't work. He's then mocked by the Eaglet for using big words he may not know the meaning of, basically calling him stupid. The Eaglet hides his grin but the other birds laugh aloud at the Mouse's expense.The one above is the Dodo bird who after this scene interjects to talk about a game. I was invited to foreshadow the Dodo's appearance so I had him rather off to the side looking displeased with his fellow fowl. He's wearing a very squashed top hat, a bow tie and collar, and spats.
