Happy Birds Day!

I wasn't looking for birds today. But, I sure found 'em.

I believe this is an old dove decoy. I have no idea why it's painted red. Any ideas? Function or fashion? (OH! I think the red is supposed to simulate a hurt, bleeding bird. Coyote bait or something like that. David, am I right?)

This fuzzy duck caught my attention. He has wire feet and such personality! He certainly takes me back to my primitive roots.

These doves (or whatever they are) are most certainly not primitive. I love their clean lines! Won't they be beautiful as decorations for Christmas?

I like the green at the bottom.

I got a few other things. But, today's post has gone to the birds. Which do you favor?

Happy Thursday/Birdsday!

ps. If you haven't already, please drop by David's blog and give him some love. It's been a rough week/month. Thanks!

  15. I'm just now seeing that you were steering people to my blog. Thank you, love! Yes, it has been a crazy and busy week.

    That is definitely a dove decoy, but I have no idea why it was painted red. I doubt it was for varmint hunting, just because I've never seen a red varmint decoy. My guess is it was used as some kind of decoration.
