Real nice!  Good enough that one could probably recognize a real bird from it!

I'm thinking we might have to start up a woodcarving board here yet soon. Thanks for sharing

I agree with that, BJ!  Carving is a valuable primitive skill.  Maybe 2 new boards, one for carving and one for forging.  Lots of interesting info in both skills!  How do we convince the admins?

I like it!

Hehehe, I got a little kestrel that might wanna "perch" on it.  And by perch, I mean perch aggressively!  LOL
