Thanks for the tutorial. I learned several new things here. For one, I was never able to add selections before, I see how you did it by completing the lasso while holding the shift key, I always tried to do an open ended selection that touched the original, and then the original would go away. But if you complete (close) each new addition, it adds.
I also was unaware of the blur brush, now I have it,
Overall, this is a better way to do it, but I still think I would need a tablet-pen for fine work.
I still ended up with a halo around the bird and had to make a bird mask to preserve detail. I found the quick selection toll did pretty good at selecting the bird in spite of the low contrast.
