Needs more sounds

At first I thought this flash contains no sounds. It took a while for the first sound to play and when it did it was pretty quiet.
I think it would be good to include some background noises. Cars passing by on a street (even though we don't see a street, but it may be behind us ;) ), other birds chirping, etc. .

Graphics where very decent, only when the blue dot was covered in guano it didn't look that good.

Pretty good

The graphics weren't bad, but the sound was a bit too quiet. It was also pretty short, but considering that it was just animation practise that's not too bad. Overall, a pretty good short Flash.

Short and a bit scrappy

The art itself was slightly less than decent on the whole, unfortunately. Whilst it looks okay, little things stand out as scrappy, for example the 20cm or so river, the tree with its roots put in through erasing part of it, and the uneven brush lines (in general).
This animation featured mostly motion tweening and looping symbols. Furthermore, the little bit of frame by frame was quite obviously rushed. Animation is a pain in the butt, but if you could just put in a few more frames and be more careful about how it's done, it'll make your animation look much better, like when the bird poops on his tongue, he seems to wipe it away, and it sort of disappears. Perhaps you could animate it being slowly wiped off onto the ground.
Lastly, besides the length, you need more sound. The sound the blue fuzz makes when mocking the bird would almost be more appropriate for the bird defecating on the blue fuzz. Other sounds could include frustration at the bird and something similar but not quite the sound you used for him mocking the bird.
It was alright though, keep working on it!

~ Animation/Graphics ~

Graphic wise this was pretty good in my opinion. Good practice of skills and everything seemed to go pretty well all around. The only faults in my opinion would be when the bird pooped on the ground after a short amount of time it just randomly disappeared for no reason. When he pooped a whole lot on the character it got a little sloppy (no pun intended) and looks like the animation could have been a bit smoother there.

~ Story/Content ~

Not a bad character I guess. I could see him being in a flash series. Kind of hard to review since it was basically just a test of the animation skills and everything. Wouldn't mind seeing what you could do with this character if there was some kind of content behind it. Even if you didn't want plot you could just have this character exploring and having random things being done to him like what happened here with the bird.

~ Audio ~

The audio was synced well in my opinion. Good quality stuff all around. It might have been able to use some quiet ambient music in the background.

~ Overall ~

I can see this character being used in more than just a simple test like you have created here.

Not bad animation

I think that you need to spend some more time developing a plot that you can use definitively for your pieces, but this is certainly a decent looking work. I'm not exactly sure what the 'Blue Tot' is, but it is quite well drawn, in a simple sense. It fits in well with the background and the animation style of the bird.

I think that you could have used some sound effects of birdsong, to give the piece more depth and overall it's a little short to showcase your animating abilities. I am sure that you will go far with more practice and patience.

Not particularly a bad joke, but writing doesn't seem to be your best field.
