Hamming It Up?

Today’s weird bird is hamming it up!

I have several old cookbooks that came in handy for today’s collage…

I was inspired by this children’s card game: CREATURE CLASH

You match a front, middle and back card to create a weird creature like the one I did below:

Part Hammerhead, Platypus and Flamingo, it’s a HAM-TY-GO!

Sounds like ordering a ham sandwich to go…

I must be hungry! Lol!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

A Nudnik Bird

Today’s weird bird is rather dull…

It is a Nudnik bird!

Nudnik (nood-nik) – a persistently dull, boring pest.

Sometimes I feel like my weird birds are a little boring or maybe I just need a break from creating them for awhile.

So I have decided to take a blogging break and enjoy the lake for the summer.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Old Geyser

Today’s weird bird is sometimes confused with an old Geezer bird…

But this one is definitely an Old Geyser!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Spotted Quail

I spotted a Quail in my yard the other day. I just love watching them skitter across the yard always on the look out for my cat!

Today’s weird bird resembles a Quail:

Perhaps it is a Spotted Quail?

Did you know the little apostrophe on top of both male and female‘s heads is called a plume or topknot? The male’s plume is more pronounced.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Puzzler

Did you know that January is national puzzle month?

I have completed one 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle with Happy Buttons:

And I am working on a second one with Houseplants:

Sometimes my weird birds start out like a puzzle:

I started this trio in watercolor. Then I added a little paper collage:

Next, some details with color pencils:

And finished with pencil shading:

What kind of puzzles do YOU like to work on?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Lazy Susan

Susan always served the best appetizers for her feather friends…

She would sit down with a plate on her belly and slowly spin the plate around so everyone could sample the seeds…

This is why she was nicknamed, Lazy Susan.

One never knows what will inspire a silly weird bird!

I drew this pattern with Copic markers yesterday evening:

Earlier in the day, I painted these papers:

It was to create this project:

I hope you let your imagination soar!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. I’m posting a little late today… feeling kind of lazy I guess! 😉

A Moose Goose?

This weird bird flew out of my imagination!

I started with an eyes closed drawing and discovered what looked to me like a moose! So I added a little collage:

A blue Moose Goose is on the loose!

I hope this silly bird gives you a smile today!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Thingamabob…

I haven’t forgotten today’s weird bird

It is A Thingamabob and A Thingamajig!

Now where did I put my car keys…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May it be a memorable day for you!

Cheers! 🙂

This Spud’s for you!

I haven’t posted in a little while on my blog…

I hope you are all well!

It has been raining A LOT where I live in the Pacific Northwest which makes me feel like a couch potato

It was my inspiration for today’s weird bird:

May it give you a smile and bring you a little sunshine on a cloudy day!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Pajama Party

You have heard of a cat’s pajamas, right?

Why not a bird’s pajamas?!

I got ideas from this book for their outfits:

What animal would YOU invite to a pajama party?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂
