A while back I found some wooden bird figures on clearance at a craft store. They were fairly boring as just bare wood. So I painted them. Now they look like Banded Stilts which are native to Australia. They sit in the foyer on one of the tables.
I also found a wee plaster song bird which was a very drab brown. So it got painted as well only this one now resembles a Western Bluebird. It now resides on the bookshelves in the north hall.
