Hooded is a marking that adds a soft-edged, very colorful hood to the head of the beast. This hood may extend down to the shoulders.
Not unlike Points there are several swatches available you may pick a color from. Any swatch may be picked, no matter the base coat color!
While it is entirely possible to use this marking to cover up everything from beak to shoulders, it is also allowed to have some larger holes or breaks in it. It can also be used similarly to Pangare for example and only cover the underside of the beasts’ neck.
Many kinds of birds have very colorful heads and necks, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!
