I found a horrible 10-stitch mistake in the pattern! I've unlisted it on Etsy but not here, I'll have to delay delivery if anyone happens to buy it...
...And it turns out that I've actually knitted it wrong too, all the second wing and head need to MOVE 10 STITCHES! 30 hours I have to desperately redo! waaaah! :'( I could probably have saved all my effort today if I had just realized something was wrong when I tried to line up the knitting with the drawing...the head and second wing were fine, but they were too close to the big wing...stupid blind eye to huge flags!
But what seems to have happened is that I wrote the whole part of what I've already knitted proportionately off-site, so I think I'll just continue with what I've done, and hope I can jimmy all the rest of the picture along with it.

I finally realize the importance of the dated progress page...it shows just how much I'm actually working!
