      Dont let him eat your bugs. Nice birdie!
    2. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Too much bugs... THEY would eat HIM first ;-)
      Thank you Caperkid for your nice funny quick lovely comment!
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      I don't care who made it, either.....it's spectacular! :)
    4. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Hehe, I'm a little upset by so much people wanting to know "who made it and when" for common items... Why can't just enjoy...
      Thank you Efe!
    5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      Kyra, I agree with that 100%. There are things which will always remain mysteries simply because it's not possible to find out who made it and when. The other reason is that there is no information about a certain item on the web, no matter how hard a person looks for it. For example - my sea serpent/cat/snail in blue luster! LOL!
    6. Caperkid, 4 years ago
      I made them and i want them back. Please.
    7. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      LOL @Caperkid! Methinks you're fresh outta luck on that one....
    8. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Lol! Good answer Caperkid! or John Doe on wednesday, 3 P.M. ;-))

      Thanks Kyra,
      I'm from the pen and inkwell era myself, it's just I've never heard of a nib wiper. I looked through your links, and I think your sparrow is the nicest and prettiest I've seen.
    15. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Kyra, This is absolutely incredible!! So very detailed in every way!
    16. Agram.m Agram.m, 4 years ago
      So detailed, it could fly away any moment to eat me insects. Beauty bird!
    17. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Ha Gilian, me too learned writing with a dip pen and inkwell :-)

      Absolutely beautiful,Kyra!
      But the last photo made me scared,looks so realistic !
      Sometimes,birds escaping from predacious ones crashed at my window.This is so sad...
    29. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Right Yvonne! Had some too who crashed against the windows. . . We were two running when hearing the boom... Me and the cat!

      OMG! I thought 'Nib Wiper' was the bird's name! "Aye, there's a lovley Nib Wiper in the tree over there!" You have your tits and buntings, I though well, why not a Nib Wiper?

      SMACK MY HEAD!!! He's darling!
    35. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Lol! You're funny Celiene :-D
      Of course, why not call him a French brown headed nib wiper!
      Birds can have so strange names :-)
      Thank you for your comment!

      A quiet, harmless little bird,
      About your door I come ;
      And when my low "
      chick-chick," is heard,
      I'm asking for a crumb.
      O'er mint and clover-tops I flit,
      And through the fragrant yarrow ;
      Then, waiting near your door I sit,
      A patient little sparrow.
      To yon old churchyard late I flew,
      And from its gate looked round,
      Where marble stood, and willows grew,
      Within the silent ground.
      The branches drooped, the graven stone
      Gazed on the grassy barrow ;
      But all was hush, and thftre was none
      Awake to hear the sparrow.
      In simple suit of russet brown,
      I thus am daily dressed,
      While other birds on me look down ;
      Yet I've a peaceful breast.
      No envy for the loud and gay
      Shall e'er my bosom harrow ;
      More lowly, I'm more blest than they,
      A fearless, trustful sparrow !
      For clearer note, and richer plume,
      And wider wings to fly,
      May others higher rank assume
      On nature's scale, than I.
      Yet crimson, azure, green and gold
      Attract the archer's arrow :
      Bright captives, too, the cage may hold,
      That never held a sparrow !
      Now. lady, lest around your door
      The bird that comes to-day
      A crumb to ask, may come no more,
      At heart my message lay.
      For I'm our Maker's carrier-bird,
      Though seems my sphere so narrow ;
      And 'tis a kindly Spirit-word
      He sendeth by " the sparrow
      smiling...

      I'm loving your little Sparrow once again!! So incredible!!
    47. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 8 months ago
      The common sparrow is one of my fave birds, this is gold to me. The only thing I don't like is tipping him over in the last photo, as he looks dead there.
    48. kyratango kyratango, 8 months ago
      Phil, I love these little buggers too! Except when it is spring time and they begin to SCREAM in the tree near my bedroom at 5.06AM.... it will soon arrive :-))
      Thank you, and sorry for the dead bird effect in last pic!
    49. valentino97 valentino97, 8 months ago
      Yep, screaming to say "hey, get up, the sun rose, we have another day!!" This little guy is very sweet! I love Roycroft's poem too. Thanks - I had never heard of nib wipers until you shared this and your lizard. :-)
