Just to give credit where credit is due. My bird inspiration and creative attempt came from an article by Gerry Leone in the December 2013 Model Railroader magazine. (Page 36).
It is truly a fun winter-time diversion for people with great eyes or magnifying visors or loops.
For all that may want to try their hand at it I advise very small solder wire size and to do it on a white type background and perhaps a small enclosed area. I did not do that at first and I would make one and lose it to the carpet monster. For those with strong eyes I would still suggest eye protection as these little guys are like pieces of shrapnel when they come flying out from the tweezers.
I think I might snap a few progress shots on the birds I am still attempting to master.
All in fun.
