Model birds

Hi, firstly i would like to say hello to everyone as this is my first post. Secondly, I am new to blender and have been working on a water animation, To finish this animation i would like to add a bird flying in drinking some water and then flying off.

How would i start to do this and is there any tutorials on modelling ?

Thanks in advance. TMN .

google is your friend. There is a new wing rigging tut on CG cookie but for a simpler bird go the the wikik intro to animation tut.

I guess you could use the bird from BBB.
