Long-legged Pheasant

On April 25, I posted a few picturres of the beginning of the construction of this bird.

I finished it yesterday, and it turned out pretty cute! It's too windy out today to get a good picture, but I will post another one when I can. 

This was for the challenge for my Monday night group. The challenge was to create something "structural" or three-dimensional. 

The legs are copper rod,  wound with copper wire. I stuck with copper colored fabrics. The tail is made of feathers from a cheesy Thanksgiving decoration, and the feathers on the head are real. It was a lot of fun, and a real challenge to get it to stand up reliably. (Thanks, Bob, for your engineering help.)
