A perfect rendition of the colors and markings, when following the publications of today.
What's really known is that this bird died in late winter 1918 (13th of March). It never saw such a landscape as illustrated, where the trees are full in green, the fields of wheat becomes yellow and a summer cumulo nimbus rules the background.
How much historic truth is needed, even by such an excellent illustration?
(Tom Lovell may have asked.)
