These are the 5 birds that I have carved recently.
They ate all hand carved and painted to replicate the real life so a lot of the time the paint is mixed to get the right colouring.
Once I get the right template that carving is just a matter if looking carefully at the individual bird and carving the blank to resemble the bird.

Each time I carve a bird I seem to find more details.
They have been painted with Jo Sonjas paint and a white wax to finish and protect.

A great job on some beautiful birds. Are these all native species to Australia?

Hi Eric, I have only been carving birds to likeness for approximately 6 months. I was asked if I could carve a Blue wren. It all started from there.

That is a beautiful “collection”... If you sell them I hope they don’t get separated andd go to the same lucky purchaser…

They are birds and a Magpie... and for luck… G’arn the Woods! (hard to imagine my missing teeth and IQ of 10… for all you foreigners… that’s the description of a typical Collingwood barracker).

The birds are beautiful. Hard to believe you’ve only been carving birds for 6 months. Hope to see more of your work posted in the future.

and here is a possible answer,

The scent of canola shares similarities with other yellow flowers: I think of the bright, rich scent of yellow daffodils when I inhale. ... Overall however, canola is a sweet, bright and semi-powdery smell, slightly reminiscent of wattle, but much more gutsy. It’s narcotic, syrupy, rounded, rich and sharp all at once.
