Maid In The Shade

I’ve heard of a housewife…

And a househusband,

But a housebird?!!  How absurd!

Well, maybe not…

Ha!  A bird has a built-in “feather duster!”

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Toucan Dan Can

Toucan Dan can balance a can bowl with a fish while spinning a dish…

And riding a squishy “Ish”!

May your balancing act (life) be full of happy surprises…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

An Owl From Spangle

There once was an owl from Spangle

Who could dance the midnight tangle,

He could dip and sway

Other birds did say –

From a branch at any angle.

Just a little Limerick to give you a smile today!

Cheers!  🙂

My First “REAL” Selfie

I have been reading about drawing faces from various sources and decided to try a go at a more “realistic” selfie using my new set of Rembrandt Soft Pastels:

I have only used soft pastels for drawing flowers so this was a bit of a stretch for me!

It helped me to focus on the “shadows” when drawing my face and NOT see it as a face – or MY FACE, eek!  That’s really scary as I would spend waaay too much time focusing on wrinkles and double chins…

OH, I see I’m digressing! Lol! 😉  Here I am in my red glasses:

So I’m proud of myself for completing this first “REAL” selfie and to posting it here and on Instagram!!

Phew!  🙂

Happy Monday!

The Surfer Bird

The Surfer Bird has become extinct and is now known as a shore bird…

Perhaps you have seen a Surfer Bird dude hanging out near your favorite beach with the shore birds!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Hang-Ten Friends! 🙂

The Puddle-Jumper

Perhaps you have seen this bird lately in your neighborhood?

Around here it means that Spring is just around the corner…

Time to put on your galoshes and jump some puddles!!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers!  🙂

P.S. Do you see any animals in the puddles or clouds?

A Crackling Cackle?

Q:  What cracks up a Cackle bird?

A:  A bad egg joke…

Such as…

Q:  How did the egg cross the road?

A:  It scrambled across!  And that’s no yolk…hehe!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers!  🙂

One Large Schnozzle

Don’t let this tough bird’s schnozzle (beak) fool you:

He is one smart quacker!!

Hope this quacks you up today… or at least helps you quack a smile!! Hehe!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  Get a grip… don’t let your schnozzle drip!  I’ve been dealing with a cold for over a month now and my hubby just caught it… ugh! 😉

Ice Cube Birdy

I was thinking of the Hip-Hop song, “Ice Ice Baby,” by Vanilla Ice for today’s bird…

Well, not really… I was thinking the title of the song was “Ice Cube Baby!”  Lol!  🙂

I tend to make up my own titles and words to songs… much like this imaginary bird!

The forecast is for extra “frigid” temperatures in the Pacific Northwest the next few days…  I think the birds will be thinking, “Ice Cube Baby!”

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Bundle up and stay warm for those of you who live where it’s cold outside and PLEASE send some heat if you who live where it’s warm!!

Cheers!!  🙂
