Here are 3 of 4 Chickadees made this spring for The Wild Bird Store in Calgary, they measure approximately 5 x 3 inches. We like to use Kokomo 1075 & 1076 for chickadees. For the branch we use a piece of copper electric 14 gauge wire, cleaned with steel wool and tinned. These birds are all cleaned several times in the process with Kwik Clean, black patina applied and finally Kem-Pro stained glass polish.
This is another Goldfinch that we made for the Wild Bird Store in Calgary. We used all Spectrum glass and the white glass was Spectrum’s clear white baroque. This Goldfinch measured approximately 4 x 5 inches.

We have Ravens all year round here in Central Alberta. They are quite the characters except when they raid garbage bags on pickup day, as they can make quite a mess. This one was made with Spectrum’s Black Waterglass and Black Cathedral and measures approximately 6 inches wide by 8 inches high. The solder lines were left silver to enhance the outline of each piece as black glass does not allow any light to show through.
