Bird Watch... Day Two

Ok, so here's the second try. I got the pattern from Spool, and just fell in love with the bird mobile shown! I may have to make one of my own, it's so darn cute. And the thing is, I don't even like birds all that much. I know, I know, all God's creatures and all that, but I have to admit that they kind of freak me out. They look like they should have arms when they're hopping around on the ground. Why don't they have arms? Wouldn't their little bird lives be a lot easier if they had arms? And don't get me started on the GIANT crows that follow me throught the parking lot. That's just not right. Of course, if I suddenly had flamingos flocking outside my window at work, that would be another story.  I try to like birds, my friend Lisa loves birds, and my Mother thought it was her calling to feed them in all weather conditions. Those birds gave her a lot of happiness, and for that I can try to get along with them. But seriously, you just KNOW that they're waiting for the chance to peck your eyes out. So anyhoo, here's Bird Number Dos...

And not a dolphin in sight. I shall call him Wilbur. He's kind of parakeet-ish, doncha think? I do like the chest part, and he went together pretty easily. All in all, I think I like him. You know, as long as he doesn't try to peck my eyes out. I have one more pattern that I'm going to try, and then we'll see who makes the cut for BIRDS OF CHANGE - 2009! 
You know, now that I look at the first picture again, (and once more, I'm sorry for my horrible pictures. I don't know why I can't ever take a decent picture!) But if you look at that first picture, riiiiight in front of Wilbur's head.... do you see it? 
Is it... is it........a...... face?  Creeeeepy...

WHO THE HELL IS THAT BEHIND WILBER??? wHOA! I see a couple of questionable subjects! And what are they screaming at?
I love Wilber though! Not parakeet-ish. More like Macaw-ish. Very cute! And I love that he is tie dyed!!! Of course he is!
