Paper mache birds

by Marilyn Kalbhenn
(Cape Breton, Nova Scotia)

These are two Black Capped Chickadees who love our bird feeders. They are life size, made from paper mache and paper clay. There is a wire coat hanger in the the branch, and one is hanging by fishing line so he looks as if he is flying. As part of the feeder armature, there is a small block of foam, which was needed to hold up the coat hanger. I'm not sure if you can see all the bird seed and a Lady bug. This piece was fun to make :-)
