They are an unusual looking bird but a very interesting one. This really captures the elemental nature of them, excellent.

The empty, grey bg gives the impression of it emerging from a receding mist, suddenly there and menacing...

Very aptly named and so very well captured. The lone lifeless tree adding to that feeling of entering a Charnel House.
