Hi, All!

I just bought these miniature birds from Hobby Lobby for $2.  They're the Mayberry Street Miniatures Brand and I will be using them in ISPY bags like lil_abi's for christmas.

I'd love to be able to list exactly what each bird is, but I'm not sure for a majority of them!  Can you help?

Row 1:

Possibly the european robin, cardinal, and bluebird.  These are the three I'm most sure about.
Row 2:

Yeah, these are more difficult.  Maybe a goldfinch for the one with white stripes?
Row 3:

These were in a different position.  They look more like parrots (green) and a hawk (brown).  Not sure though.
Row 4:

First one is definitely a blue jay, but I'm not sure about the other two.  The brown one on the far right has speckles on its belly and on its back.

I realize that these cheap "made in china" birds probably aren't completely accurate, but if you know what they could be, I'd be ever so appreciative!

Yes, I would say the red bird could be a cardinal, and the one with white strips could be a gold finch. 

The more children are valued, the better their values will be.

Erm, they're not exactly super realistic. Cheesy  The first one is definitely a european robin and the other two in that picture are supposed to be what you think they are.  The second picture, first bird is definitely supposed to be a goldfinch.  The other two... not so much of anything that I can tell.  I can't think of anything in North America with the color situation of the second one and if I HAD to say something for the third I'd say turtle dove but meh, not really.  The parrots... not so much of anything that I can tell there either.  Although the middle one reminds me of a kakapo, but I highly doubt whoever made it intended that. Tongue  The last row first one is intended to be a bluejay and the last one is intended to be some species of sparrow but yea... not really.  So erm, moral of the story, most things like these don't strive for accuracy. Wink  Sorry!

Yeah, I kind of suspected that when I started out, but I thought there might be some birds out there I hadn't seen before...  Wink

Thanks for your help.  I'll try to be accurate for the ones I know, and I'll probably say something generic like "yellow bird" for the ones I don't!

I really appreciate everyone's responses!
