Bird a Day – 55 flightless fabric birds

A flock of 55 fabric birds

This soft and colourful flock swings from the ceiling in my dining room.

Thought that you’d like to see what I’m working on in the studio these days; birds with feet and wings.

Almost there…. to the last of the 55 flock members….

If you’re out this summer and you see a flash of red, it might be one of these real birds….

Time is flying by….

Ah! here’s another one that needs wings. Maybe my next project will be to make 56 pairs of wings, one could never have enough wings.

Here are a few real live yellow birds for you…

#51 Bird a Day

#51

Bird a Day – Needing time to embellish, not forgetting the fine details. #51 will return with a new feather decor in the near future.

Starting from the basics with bold colours,  and the option to add on…..

I found an article on colour choice for business rather that personality…. love the ideas in this article.

Here, Lane used bright hot pink for the British Independent Film Festival poster. Wishing to capture attention, he combined it with tongue-in-cheek text for fun, energetic and youthful appeal.

#50 Bird a Day

#50

Fifty is a special number, it feels big! Even though this little bird is the fiftieth of the flock it’s a fantastic milestone.

I’m thinking….. I should travel to Australia to visit this coffee shop, click on link….

#49 Bird a Day

This little didn’t get wings, hmmm, since it is art, we can imagine. It did get me to think are there any wingless birds? Or how about flightless birds, and yes there are!

Living creatures are so fascinating and inspiring, I was impressed with the photos in this article about flightless birds, “Top 10 flightless bird species”

#48 Bird a Day

An Orange capped bird with a pink belly! I thought that it may seem a little far fetched to look like a real bird. But, then again maybe not, the Pink Robin is native to Australia, see picture below the fabric one.

click on Pink Robin to find more pink bellied birds.

Pink Robin

The Pink Robin (Petroica rodinogaster) is a small tubby bird native to southeastern Australia. The species are a resident of rainforest. Adults measure 13.5 cm (5.3 in) in length.

Males are brownish-black above, with a black throat and head. It has a distinctive white crown, dark brown eyes, pink breast and small thin black bill with small white spot above it. The belly is white and grey-black upperparts, wings and tail. Females have grey-brown plumage, pale brown buff underparts with a pinkish tint.

#47 – Bird a Day

#47

Have you ever noticed how birds and fish can resemble one another, number 47 is looking a little fishy 🙂

I’m pleased with myself, I’ve discovered that I’m not the only one to count in a visual way,  Dr. Seuss counted fish like I count birds, I now have to come up with a fancy tune or a story for these 55 birds.
