    He's about 4 inches long and 2 high, and weighs almost a POUND!
    I found numerous similars online, priced from 5-65 dollars. Honest! I can show ya!
    Cast iron, I'm guessing. Maybe turn-of-the-century?
    Why so HEAVY???
    Charming, in any event.

      Nice Birdy
      Did you try to stick a magnet to the critter??

      Thanks, dahlings!
      Yes, I did touch a magnet to it and it is definitely attracted. It's really quite functional... fits the palm nicely, etc., but gee, why make it so heavy?? The weight makes it a little clumsy.

      Looks like cast iron or cast steel, but you said its magnetic? If the mixture was right. It could be magnetic..
