I wasn't sure if this little guy belonged here or the misc board.
I made him for the assemblage  art swap.   It's my first attempt at 3-D assemblage art.
except for the decorative gears he is made of thrift store finds.  His body is a fake pear,  his wings and feet and tail are made from old utensils. The  nest is a wreath form that I glued a bunch of nails on. Some of the  nails I bent.  If I had a vise I could have bent more nails but I was just using pliers and  my own hand  strength so I was limited.
