The Miskito Bird

A little Silliness on a Saturday –

Once upon a time in a magical land, there lived a Miskito bird.  Now this bird was very unusual – even for a magical land.  It was part insect and part bird (called an in-bird).  Its wings were colorful like a butterfly and its beak was long and narrow like a Hummingbird.

Miskito Bird

This in-bird made a loud, annoying, buzzing sound when it flew, much like a Mosquito insect does today.  However, this Miskito did not suck your blood.  Instead, when you heard its loud hum, you instantly craved a Mojito.

I hope you enjoy reading about the Mojito’s history as much as I did!

I created my bird today by taking a color copy of a doodle I had created previously:

My pattern - colored

I started my doodle with a black, Zig writer ink pen and then colored it with markers and watercolors before I copied it on a Laser color copier.

I then cut-up my copy to create my bird!

  4. This is lovely!! I wish we had these instead if their awful cousins. Lol. Ya know as soon as I saw this I thought of the beautiful hand-painted Mexican pottery. Wouldn’t this make a gorgeous platter? Or maybe some tiles for a back splash?

  6. Imagine craving a mojito every time this in-bird flew by. Rum sales would sky-rocket.
