Focus On A Floccus

According to Dictionary.com –

Floccus is

  1.  (noun) A small tuft of woolly hairs.
  2. (adjective) Meteorology (of a cloud) having elements in the form of small, rounded tufts.

My version of a Tufted Floccus:

5397D124-F813-400D-94F4-973E9F4B926F

This weird bird often appears to be scowling and yet I think he is only focusing on his next meal… (something I seem to be thinking about a lot lately since I’m trying to loose a little weight!)

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this bird gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  I imagine you won’t look at tufted clouds without thinking of this weird bird! 😉

 

A Wild Quacker…

There is a saying, “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.”

Apparently, this person never heard of Weird Bird Wednesday…

18D39C12-8FD5-4CA2-BA53-48CAA0E99931

This is a wild Quacker, like a wild card, uh, I mean duck!

YOU get to name it!

That is if you want to play along…

Happy Wild Duck Wednesday!  hehe

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  No “fowl” language…haha

The Spring Sandwich Puff

Since Mother’s Day is this weekend, I decided to create today’s weird bird in memory of ALL mothers – birds and humans! 😉

Lunches and Brunches…

Recipes old and new,

I “cooked” up this bird…

In memory of you! ❤️

Happy Mother’s Day!

A Hemming Bird

Today, I decided to challenge myself by limiting my collage papers for creating a weird bird.

These are the materials I chose, some were sitting on my table from previous projects:

A551A2BB-FB35-4247-989E-C53ED840B27F

I cut out shapes and played with patterns until this Hemming Bird appeared from the coat factory family…

7A7ACC29-A6F2-4EB7-BCAD-86531B5635DE

He (or she) was looking a little disheveled, so I added a few details to make him look im-pressive… hehe!

814F9712-EF9B-434D-8F44-5A2AF8BEE67A

I hope your day “shapes up” to be extra wonderful!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  The weather is finally warming up in the Pacific Northwest!  Time to ditch the coats!! YAY!

A Keeldeer Bird

Perhaps you have seen a “Killdeer Bird” on a sandy beach?

Well, here is its cousin, a Keeldeer Bird

9F60ACC7-F23F-409B-B0DA-EE5EDC1C330F

The Keeldeer is also a shoreline bird but a bit shy.  Its beak is the shape of a boat “keel” hence its name.

Let me know if you see one at the beach this summer…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! 

Cheers!  🙂

Nancy Drew And Dapper Dan

I decided to add a little mystery to my post today…

I was at a thrift store yesterday, buying old books for a collage class I’m taking…

20A7F1C4-01F7-4C51-AB8B-DA62B7CBA854

I’ll share more about the online class in Thursday’s post! 😉

I found several old Nancy Drew books, like this one:

4050173B-8A44-42A7-A6FF-02234AE6FC99

I remember reading the book series as a young girl.  How about you?

This book was only $1.00 so I bought it, thinking it might be fun to read again!  😃  And possibly, include a page or two into one of my weird birds!

Which brings me to today’s post… Dapper Dan:

B5BFF668-EDEE-4FB8-BB70-1EEFF156DA87

Dapper Dan almost turned into Dapper Damn when I was creating the hand lettering for his name and messed up!  Ugh! 😬

Thank goodness for white pens (much like white-out!)

Apparently, the “Old Maid” card game was subconsciously on my mind… Do you remember these cards?

7ED472F8-555D-46E4-BB89-A17117B555B2

Funny how one memory leads to another one…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May it bring you happy memories of your childhood…

Cheers!  🙂

A Cinch

This weird bird was A Cinch to make:

F4BEBCB5-29D5-46B3-83E0-5DE984575047

According to Wikipedia, Cinch is an American trick-taking card game primarily played by four players.  Developed in Denver, Colorado in the 1880’s the card game went out of fashion with the rise of Auction Bridge.

The word, cinch has several meanings in the dictionary, such as easy and having a tight grip.

I thought it made the perfect subject for today’s weird bird!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

 

A Feature Creature?

I posted this doodle on Instagram last week…

E2C8064D-8CD5-46B2-B767-AB039A7A58EE

I was playing with the features of a face as a doodle… How many eyes and noses do you see?

3614264A-430E-4C7A-BE48-E58AB6E909ED

And eyebrows, ears and lips?

F76C4236-161B-4CDC-90C4-A7EBF7C6476E

I see a couple of weird birds…Lol!

How about you?

What do YOU see?

Happy Friday!  Cheers! 🙂

Have Your Cake And…

My MIL turned 85 years old yesterday! 😃  WOWZA!

So I thought I would repost this Diva bird since I’m taking a little break from blogging this week…

And be sure to eat a slice of cake! 🍰

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Phrase Drill

Sometimes during a Phrase Drill the geese forgot which way to fly…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

I hope you “fly” in the right direction today…

Cheers! 🙂
