Calling all bird lovers!

I need your help today, lovely readers.

I'm working on some sketches for new bird brooch designs, and I'd love to know if you have a favourite kind of bird.

I've already made bullfinches...


... goldfinches....
... bluetits...

... robins...

... greenfinches....
... chaffinches...
... cardinals...
... coaltits...
...and snowy owls...


... but what should I make next?

Living in the city, I've grown very fond of Starlings :)

Your birds are darling, by the way!

Hollie May said...

Kim said...

tufted titmouse! so sweet and soft looking...

phoward1112 said...

Bluebirds (the state bird of Missouri) are very pretty and vibrant. They would make a very cute brooch :)
Here's a link to see what the bird looks like, they are small and oh so cute! :)

I love long tail tits, they have such cute faces. Also love barn owls.

Sue Hayton said...

Tits!

eva vercauteren said...

Penguins. :)

Parrots maybe?

Meowcake said...

These are the most adorable things I have seen! I don't know much about birds at all but I would say King Fisher. They fascinate me!

PaperFish! said...

there is nothing left!! erm, kingfisher? we have a squirrel in our garden.

Olivia said...

Red-headed woodpeckers or maybe Baltimore Orioles. Love their colors!

HollybirdBeads said...

Budgies!!

Peggy said...

I love Chickadees, however I could easily see a peacock.

Renee Weber said...

those are all fabulous!

how about a hummingbird?

marysza said...

Emma said...

Kingfishers have the most beautiful colours, or perhaps a goldcrest?

Andrea Lauren said...

I think these have already been said - but I love kingfishers and bluejays. There's always the California Quail :)

Cassandra said...

I agree. Chickadees, I read once, are "the darlings of the bird world". I also really like the tufted titmouse. They are so cute!

kateschmate.com said...

Doves? Crows? Can't wait to see what you do next!

Chloe said...

Ooh, pigeons or long tail tits would be lovely :D

KooKooCraft said...

beautiful! i love birds! and i vote for kingfisher, peacock, hoopoe and white stork :)

Fiona said...

A thrush with a lovely speckly chest.

Katie said...

Bluetits and robins are my favourites, but since you already have those, I would say sparrows. Often overlooked, but very cute, I think.

Little Green Doll said...

Beautiful!! all birds are wonderful, maybe penguins or parakeets... :)

suzewearsshoes said...

Pheasants, for they are the most hilarious of birds. Also they are pretty cute-looking :)

Daniel said...

i think a blue jay would match your cardinal wonderfully : )

Pato said...

How about a Masked Gnatcatcher:

Lovely birds!

Amikadeja said...

My favourite birds are tits! They are beautiful...and grateful when they get food in winter...And they sing beautiful...Yep, my favourite. :-)

PetraB said...

I love both the starlings and the blue jays. The starlings because they are such good fun when chatting together and having a good time ... and blue jays are just so beautiful.

!!! Şekerperisi !!! said...

Excellent colors beautiful !!!

Anonymous said...

wrens or puffins perhaps.

Angela@the crazyness that is me said...

Oh they are so cute! That little Robin is too die for!

Cockatoos or a rooster.

Kristie said...

Canaries
Lovebirds

Alison said...

kingfishers are beautiful

Becky J said...

Wagtails are very sweet. My 5 year old suggested a peregrine falcon!

Laura said...

I agree with Suzanna: chickadees!

live.life.love.passion said...

peacock, maybe?

Renae said...

Chickadees (which I see is already popular!) Australian Magpies and Little Corellas :)

Tumus said...

Indigo Bunting: http://thundafunda.com/33/animals-pictures-nature/male-indigo-bunting-pictures.php

Exceptionally brilliant blue, very bold looking.

PILUINU said...

I love cardinals...So beautiful!

herşeyden azıcık said...

Maby you make peacock with rich colors:)) Hello from İstanbul

Jen said...

I came to say parrots (because you could go nuts with all the colours!), but someone beat me to it! Also agree with peacocks, they would be fabulous...ditto penguins. So fun for next winter!

And how about puffins?

Gorgeous work, as always.

A Time for Stitching said...

If the most-mentioned bird eventually gets made, I'm going to say Kingfishers again in the hope that you pick these!

Lilyshaw said...

All really lovely, especially the robin and geenfinch....we see a lot of magpies and rooks here, not the cutest of birds though, how about swallows and swifts?

Mruna Mistry said...

Peacocks, green bee eaters, cuckoos and maybe even a bird of paradise!

Frizzle Circle said...

what about the wee wren?

Amy said...

Red winged blackbird!

xstitcher said...

flamingos!

Sarah said...

What about a superb fairy wren?

Cate said...

If you wanted to 'branch out' (yes, I kill me!) you could do some aussie parrots like major mitchell or sulphur-crested cockatoos or eclectus parrots or rosellas??

Sarah said...

Peacock
chickadee

Arménia Baptista said...

They are all so beautiful!!!!
...Robins are my favourities
:)

Jumbleberries said...

I love wrens, great shape, but not that colourful. We have a beautiful kingfisher on our river - now that's colourful. x

rachel said...

I don't know if any one else suggested a gouldian finch, but here's what they look like

flowerpress said...

I second the blue wrens, I have the cutest little family that lives in my backyard. They are so sweet and brave and beautiful!

Natalie said...

They're lovely! I've been lucky enough to see both a Green Woodpecker & a Great Spotted Woodpecker in my south London garden recently. They're both beautiful - I especially love their long bills.

dropstitch said...

I do love wagtails, though I'm not sure how recognisable they'd be if you couldn't see their tails wagging. Do you do pigeons, I wonder...?

Maria said...

A Kingfisher would rock too!!

Namitha, Dipak and Anant said...

We love your birds. Our current favourites are a small bird called the Ashy Prinia (Ashy wren warbler) and the White Breasted kingfisher.
-Namitha and Anant, Delhi, India.

Hannah said...

Classic blackbirds would be fab! Or how about Song Thrush's? I love their speckly chests!

SUSSEXMOUSE said...

We have Herons visiting our garden pond and there are lots of Little Egrets here in Sussex. My favourite bird in our garden is the Bluetit. All of your birds are utterly brilliant. Marion x

Christa Green said...

Bluejays!

Ava said...

Nuthatch! (And seconding votes for barn owl and wren)
