I've had good luck buying supplies from Bags Unlimited. And I've not heard that they are fascists.

Oh YEAH. I’ve posted that before but haven’t looked at it for a while.

Sorry to derail the thread, but it’s crazy that anyone overtly political like Obey continues to use them. But also not surprising at all.

Oof, yeah that is surprising that Obey uses them. Geez. Jay Ryan was the person who first gave me the run down about how awful Uline is. He's been great about spreading the word to his artist friends. Before that, I had no idea.
So it goes...

I think it's a larger size, 11x14. Must be a large bird?

Beautiful bird!

This is a species native to southeastern Asia. Is the series no longer constrained to North American species? (Fat Birds of North America)
