Greetings from Sunny Florida !

In 1999 I started to make the simplest of pvc pipe birds.
At the time the little pipe birds where the rage of Florida.
Everyone seemed to have them on their lawns.

My neighbor had a pipe bird on her lawn that needed a paint job.

In a prior life (before retirement) I worked  painting trophy fish as a taxidermist.
I offered to paint her pvc pipe bird.

I took it home, made some patterns and a hobby was  born.

My biggest seller has was always been the Red Headed Woodpecker.

Snowbirds from the upper mid-west states (Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota) could not get enough of them.

I sold them for $20, and folks would buy 3-4 at a time.

I still get requests for the pattern.
