Bird index

This is a quick index of all the birds I’ve carved for the 100 Birds project.

You’ll note in the postings that each bird has two numbers. The reason for this is that I started numbering the birds before I decided to do the Hundred Birds project. I made multiple birds from several of the wood types. So, for example, bird #6 in the list below is actually the ninth bird I made. The biggest jump is between list items 6 and 7, which represents the birds I sent out as Christmas ornaments.

In the list below, the first number in each entry is the bird number within the project. Those numbers go from 1 to 100. The number in parentheses is the number engraved or burned on the back of the bird.

  1. Beautiful work and idea. I love it. In the next couple of weeks I will be taking down my very large white fig tree. If you haven’t acquired fig wood yet I’ll gladly send you some. I believe I can easily do a 3″ diameter.

  3. Great idea. I love how they all look the same yet the wood type makes them all unique. It is an excellent resource to determine the wood to choose for a project.

  4. Hi Jim, your link to bird 3 seems to be broken. Also, thanks for inspiring me to work on carving with different woods. I’m having a great time making an army of small weird creatures, thanks to you. The creatures are small now, but I’ll be feeding them a steady diet of art critics…
