Assembly
I did my usual sorting routine.


Sorting to locate all the outside border pieces, while ....
Placing the pieces into the'general-color' piles. 
Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades / patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

I started this one with the special shapes piece you can see in the near-center top right image which did not help much. I tried to determine the border first, unsuccessfully I might add as you can see below. At first I thought there would be white on all the border pieces as indicated on the box image but no- so I tried to mingle my way through what I thought were the border pieces. I must admit the border remained a mystery for some time!

I chose to start with the pretty soft pastel colors which turned out to be the 'tail-end' of the eagle and portions inside the wings. I focused on the Eagle head, body and claws to help eliminate more pieces. 

I worked on assembling the 'hidden' clusters of animals within the image. After that was completed I was left with greenery-trees and the mountains.
