A friend recommended I make a warbler for spring. Looking them up, they have some great, fun patterns, so I made this yellow rumped warbler. The patterns came out rather nicely, I think.
I’m still experimenting with different materials for feet. This bird has steel wire bound together with wrapped wool yarn. It’s sturdy and has the nice sharp look of bird feet, but I would like them to be a little more posable. Maybe next time I’ll use a double strand of lighter wire instead of a single strand of heavy wire.
