singing birds

a couple weeks ago, when I was walking home from work, I decided to step into Canoe, a modern design store in downtown Portland. while most of the things are gifty, I fell in love with these little birds. hand-sculpted birds modeled by a University of Tokyo ornithologist, these little birds are not only life sized, but they are motion and light activated and move their heads and chirp!
these would drive my cats crazy, and if they survived the initial meeting with the cats, would look cute on my shelves.

    I’ve been looking for these forever! A friend had one and I’ve been on the search ever since. Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be heading over to canoe.
