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! 🙂

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?

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!! 😉

And That’s How…

I was gluing paper scraps to create a collage on Saturday…

And that’s how this collage came to be on a 6×6 inch piece of paper:

36B46B5D-34ED-4CAC-8110-6663FA0FC605

I made a color copy of it to use pieces and parts in future collages:

F3616AF7-CADD-4A9B-965A-D7D7CE998A02

This is one thing I LOVE about collage, you can ALWAYS copy, reuse and repurpose any art you make!

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! 🙂

I’d Rather Be…

I’d rather be…

Snorkeling in Hawaii with this weird bird:

A So-Called Snorkeler Bird

Instead I have been fighting off a bad cold…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday friends!

Cheers! 🙂

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! 🙂

More Clip Art…

Remember  The Paper Clips ?

Well, these strange birds didn’t want to miss out on the fun…

82D070B9-1F4D-4AFE-943F-21B0AFF5B1E6

So they decide to “clip” together…

And wish you a happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  Who knew that wine foils and paper clips could become Clip Art! 😉
