Celia and I must have been thinking alike. We both finished the same bird block.
I did mine to resemble red-wing blackbirds, one of my favorite birds. I love to see the color on their wings when they fly. We had a house in Texas where they were more common than the sparrows. It was wonderful!
I still need to add their eyes. I was thinking yellow eyes but my family thought that would make them look "possessed". I thought having red eyes would make them more possessed than the yellow. Sigh .... I may have to experiment with different colors.
