cute :)
It's a young bird? I haven't studied them much but do the young feathers look like fur?

Compositionally, if the feather is to be the focal point (which it looks like here) the head and beak should point at it directly. Now, the beak points past the feather, but if it were direct it would tie the painting together more solidly.

the beak curves upward, so depending on what part you consider the point.... ;) Yes, baby ducklings look very fuzzy! Here's a pic in my faves: [link]

You have this line going through the head with the blue streak and the eye and the beak. If that whole line were pointed more directly at the feather I think it would be a stronger link. You are right about the feathers; they do look more like fur on these young ones. cute :)

good point, that would improve it. I'll have to focus a little more attention on composition. :)
