The line that goes between upper and lower bill is a bit curved. People seem to read some emotional state from that, as if it were human.

I find bird pictures not to reveal much about their state, whereas movement and behavior tells more. Some of the best bird art, published, seems to capture some movement.

Good luck witht the project. Flycatchers are among my favorites.
