Bird territory

The magpies and rooks seem to be in a pitched battle for the big Bramley apple tree that hangs over our garden from next door. It's prime nesting territory unlike the little, twisty eating apple tree at the bottom of our garden where an altogether more exotically coloured birdie seems to have uncontested rights.
Knit in the same way as Claremont and chum I thought I might get the ratios refined this time around but where Claremont was a little wider than I thought I wanted, this nameless cutie is taller. 
The knit on wings are an addition I like but next time around I think I'd go with them bigger and lower on the body. I accept now there definitely will be a next time, I think these faux feathered friends are the perfect answer for my leftovers bag and fun little knits for the crafting deprived.

What a sweet little bird, definitely a great way to use up odds and ends,
and much more interesting than the sparrows and starlings that inhabit my garden :0)
