This only took a couple of hours to put together. Made from Cypress Pine pickets and baling twine.
It was initially made at Christmas time as a Christmas tree. But as I am carving several different bird species I was running out of suitable places to display them.
This tree works great and will have another couple of birds to add to it soon.

Look at you! Oh, nice shelf. But WOW, those carvings, love them! Haven’t seen your work before, I’ve been missing out. Awesome girl!!! I was going to warn you about those real feathers, because here in the states you could be looking at a big fine or jail time. Going to check out your work some more, Very cool…...

Looks fantastic from here. You must have carved most species of birds by now ;-))

Nice work as always, now everything is all at the same place, keep the feathers as reference, for a larger bird, you wont find anything closer to nature, bravo .

How did you train your birds to stay still in each section of the shelf? Did you use positive reinforcement? :-)
