What’s On Your Plate?

I cleaned off my collage table recently and discovered new weird bird possibilities on this small plate of scraps:

A0B28173-DC4E-46D6-AFB2-AC99433D64A9

Today’s bird is everything but the kitchen sink… I mean, basin!

I wonder, what’s on your plate of creativity today?!  Please share!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

If The Shoe Fits…

Today’s weird bird is a “shoo-in” to tickle your funny bone! Hahaha!

After all, if the shoe fits…

You will want to wear a smile!

Which “shoe-bill” fits you?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Orange Crush

I have been drinking green smoothies each day for about a week to try to increase my energy.

I was at the grocery store on Monday, buying ingredients for my smoothies when I saw this weird bird!

EABC8C8E-2AB6-464E-BBCB-E063CAD1B5D2

I had an orange crush on him so I had to buy him!  My cat checked him out when I got home…

I placed him in my yard so I could see him outside my kitchen window:

4B43A201-9AC6-4741-9C04-F57254007DCD

I got to thinking how I could dress him up a bit, perhaps he needs a bit more color?

4CB1C8B3-A548-49F1-83CD-543EE940FC26

Or maybe he is more of a red dazzler?

9D002336-C271-46F5-A06E-390F363044BB

I hope he gives you a smile today like he does me!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Just Featured…

Sometimes I create drawing challenges for myself to make it more fun…

I created these faces by not filling in all the features with a Micron ink pen:

D19E9A79-EA1C-456B-849C-E09AE97FAA59

Next, I copied my original drawing and completed the faces on copy paper.  I created a couple of animals too!

5DC5C5A2-B951-440F-9346-5118485D686C

I couldn’t stop at just one sketch, kind of like eating popcorn while watching a movie! Who can eat just one bowl! 😉

FF1E9E3E-785C-4006-82BE-34529EF3683C

Just featured was very entertaining.  I hope you give it a try with your own drawings.

19BDC8C0-95EF-468C-9299-2311882AB516

And if you are unhappy with a drawing, you can just cut it out of the picture!

It is a super fun way to develop a character or perhaps tell a story.

Who will you create?

Cheers!

A Ladder Bird

I have a Limerick for today’s weird bird.

0C891B81-D987-46EF-9B13-D5DDE72121DB

There once was a Ladder bird named Delores,

Whose neck was long like a Brachiosaurus,

She rose to the top,

Chirping nonstop,

When voted most successful in the chorus!

May you sing nonstop today like Delores!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Chirp, Chirp! 🙂

Plain Vs. Peanut

Plain vs. peanut?  

M&M chocolate candies of course!

B2754DDF-97A9-459F-8E8C-6CA9984997FD

And two weird birds:

9256753D-BC5E-4BA4-9464-DE89860F5FA3

Plain Vs. Peanut

I wonder which one is Mars and which one is Murrie?

According to Mentalfloss.com M&M stands for Forrest Mars, son of the Mars candy founder, who invented, patented and began manufacturing the candy coated plain variety in a factory in New Jersey in 1941.

Mars talked to Bruce Murrie, son of Hershey’s company president about going into business together.  Their sweet deal melted like chocolate in a hot car in 1949 when Mars bought out Murrie’s share for 1 million.

Q:  What were the 5 original colors?

A:  Red, orange, yellow, green and violet

The signature “M” wasn’t stamped on the candies until 1950, in black rather than white.

Peanut M&M’s were introduced in 1954 in a tan color… It wasn’t until 1960 that they came out in colors like the plain variety.

Mars was allergic to peanuts so he never got to enjoy a handful of his creation…

I recently purchased a bag of the peanut M&M’s that inspired me for today’s weird birds!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

PS. May your day be extra sweet! 

Bird Band

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

757339f4-0df3-4588-a47c-10fe339f42e7

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! 🙂

Oh, Deer…

Remember the song, “Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer” – this is my version:

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,

Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen,

But do you recall…

The most famous weird bird of all?

48D719A2-74E8-46CD-80EE-BC51B189DFFC

Ruby the elf-deer birdy,

Sang a different melody

And if you ever heard it,

You would think she sang off-key.

All of the other birdies

Used to laugh and throw bird seed,

They never let poor Ruby

Sing from her heart, really…

E53B6F4C-52E6-456F-BD8C-87CCA9743D94

Then one foggy Christmas Eve

Santa came to say,

Ruby with your song so bright

Won’t you sing on my flight tonight?

Then how the birdies loved her

And sang along with glee,

Ruby, oh, Weird Bird Wednesday

You will go down in history!

I hope this gives you a smile today…

And Cheers to singing off-key!! 😉

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.

5A45F9A1-4F1D-42A4-8C34-20A92ABD8ADF

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!

Cheers! 🙂
