For the birds

Here's a little secret: I'm not a fan of birds.  You never know what they're thinking.  And those beaks and talons could really hurt you.

But I love me some bird decor and accessories.  Necklaces, prints, lamps, decor.  Doves, owls, falcons, penguins.  Whatever.  If it's fake, I like it.  (Side note: I do like penguins in real life.  They seem harmless and they mate for life.  Lifetime-maters can't be plotting evil, can they?)

Here are some birds that I'd add to my faux-aviary:

There's nothing sadder than owl without his graduation hat.  But this one lights up a room.

A delicate bird and lariat necklace to dangle around your neck:

A red bird to add some color into your living room:

A mommy and baby bird, discussing how to drop a poop bomb on humans:

A rather distinguished looking falcon that belongs in an antiqued 
brass frame with his own name plate (Mr. Farnesworth Helmington III)

And my favorite little bird of all...
