Christmas Tree Bird Count

Laura at SomewhereinNJ offered up a challenge to count the number of bird ornaments on your Christmas tree.

Mine is paltry but I've only been "into" birds for a year or so. Perhaps it will grow over time.

The first bird is my glass bird with a feather tail. It clips on to the branch. It's very sweet.

The next one is the most seasonal. A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

And last, the most spectacular bird ornament . . . my peacock

I love the way he is looking over his shoulder at his spectacular tail in self-admiration! They do seem the most vain of birds.

So, that's it. My Christmas Tree Bird Count is just three but it's a start!

Thanks, Laura, for a great idea!

Edit:
In trying to find a source for the peacock, I found these interesting options:

LOL!

I love that peacock's tail - don't think I have one like that.

I should actually count the number of birds on my tree - probably at least 25, but they are hard to photograph.

Thanks for sharing in the fun!

I bought it at the boutique where my mother-in-law works. They sold out (I bought the last two!)

I searched and finally found it on eBay! {click}

I edited the blog post with some other interesting bird ornament sources I came across.
