I make these birds using a pattern created exclusively for Spool Sewing by Michael Fulkerson. I also made a tutorial on how to use the pattern and whip up your own little Aviary of scrap birds on my blog, here:

I also love doing them because it creates a cute little gallery of my past projects, and they make excellent pet toys. See, Tiny Tiger LOVES his!
