Bird Band

Unfortunately, this bird band has been banned in several neighborhoods because of their LOUD and REPETITIVE playing and singing…

The Oom-Pah-Pah Feathered Trio

The “Oom-Pah-Pah Family Feathered Trio” was last seen in a neighborhood in New Jersey…

Be on the look out, this bird band may be flying your way!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Year Of The Pig…

A little birdy told me that 2019 is the year of the pig.  The Chinese New Year starts on February 5th but I decided to start celebrating a bit earlier…

Have you ever eaten a pig in a blanket?  Small sausages wrapped in dough and baked.

Today’s weird bird is about a bird bundled in a (pig) blanket:

This bird is resting on a branch after “pigging out” over the holidays! (I can so relate…) Lol! 🙂

Before Weird Bird Wednesday started, I was creating weird birds, such as The Pigsney Birds from 2015.

A little whimsy and word play to give you a smile and brighten your day!

Cheers! 🙂

A House Finch

Today’s weird bird enjoys her quiet time in the early morning…

This House Finch is wearing a matching housecoat, hat and slippers… Perhaps she purchased it at an early bird sale? 🙂

She likes waking up early to a quiet household to enjoy a special cup of house blend seeds.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Blushing Betty

With Thanksgiving here next week in the States, it is time to start planning the Turkey dinner!

I purchased this old Betty Crocker cookbook from a thrift store.  I use it for collage.  It is filled with stains and comments on the pages… it makes me wonder whose family enjoyed it. 😉

I have been drawing a lot of pears lately so it seems fitting that a pear-shaped weird bird would appear…

Blushing Betty is a variation of the photographed recipe above for Quick Brown Betty. 

I wonder is Betty blushing because she painted her toenails?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

I’d Rather Be…

A So-Called Snorkeler Bird

Instead I have been fighting off a bad cold…

A Little Mending…

I was having computer issues yesterday so wasn’t able to post my weird bird…

However, this bird is “sew” much more so I wanted to share it with you today! 😉

D3B81365-7247-4317-9F7F-5FAA3BCCE4E7

I started with one of my Gelli-plate prints that I made from a recent online class with Carla Sonheim.

Next, I added a little collage and stitching:

A Mending Birdy

I think we could all use a little mending now and then…

Perhaps your heart, body and/or spirit could use some special care.  I hope you can be extra gentle with yourself today.

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. Thank you for all the kindness you have shown me with your comments and likes.  It means so much to me! ❤️

A Rare Sighting

This weird bird was recently spotted in a jungle somewhere…

EED9640D-2CD5-4FF6-8AC9-8626C4DC63EE

A Crawfish-Bibbed Spear-Head Bird

It is so hidden in camouflage…

EED0883A-C661-4BCD-9AB4-5C655F811D8F

That it takes people time to recognize it.

Yet, if you are patient you will be lucky to see…

EED9640D-2CD5-4FF6-8AC9-8626C4DC63EE

A rare sighting of this bird!

I hope it gives you a smile today…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Cheers! 🙂

A Strange Case…

Today’s weird bird is a strange case

Could it be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?

A before and after photo:

Perhaps it is just an ordinary “Two-Headed Hat bird,” not to be confused with this one: The Cat Bird

If you’d like to inspect it further, here is a close-up photo:

Hope your day is clearly fabulous…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!
