Embroidery Birds

My quilt top is almost done. I’m currently using embroidery tread to add in the final details of the birds. I had someone tell me that the applique technique I used, while not traditional, was similar to the broderie perse method of applique. Is anyone familiar with this method? I’d love to learn more about it, other than what I can google on the internet.

Originally, when designing this quilt pattern, I wanted to make it appear that the birds were walking off their fabric and fusing with the other fabrics of the quilt. What do you think? Did I succeed?
