We haven’t been making these birds very long, but we do sure enjoy making them! Some have words, some don’t. Some are on a string, some are on a wall hook. We use raspberry leaves for the birds wing. These birds are on a string and we put the word FRIEND on them. Makes a great small gift to let someone know you are thinking of them. Measures just over 5″ beak to tail. This bird is finished in our matte-style finish (non-shiny). If you are local, swing in and see all the birds.
