A Collywobble Bird

I started my bird today with 3 sections:

My Collywobble bird - 1

Two scribbly squares and a piece of scrapbook paper.

I added lines to create a shape:

My Collywobble bird - 2

And this funny bird appeared!  I decided to name him a Collywobble.  It is an actual word that comes from two words:  colic and wobble.  It has two meanings: 1.  Intestinal cramps or other intestinal disturbance.                                                 2.  A feeling of fear, apprehension, or nervousness.

I added a little color to finish my bird:

My Collywobble bird - 3

My bird reminded me a little of a Greater Prairie Chicken.  A male of this species, inflates a strange orange-yellow sac on his neck to create an impression on a female during his display.  To see what one looks and sounds like:


Enjoy your day!
