    My mother called this her Blue Bird of happiness, so I thought I must have some from the Fayetteville Arkansas Terra Studios which started marketing glass blue birds in 1980. But this bird has wide spread wings and larger tail, both which have been pressed with deep ridges so I don't know if this is a Terra bird or a knockoff made by someone else.

    Love the deep aqua blue color.

      here's one with the sticker still intact by Leo Ward of Terra Studios in Fayetteville, Arkansas dated 1998:

      I own a Bluebird from Terra, and yes mine is the typical Bluebird, but I suspect yours was made by Terra as it has the same form only with the added features. You may want to ask in the Art Glass group on FB.
