This darling partridge bird sitting on a wreath makes me smile!  I happen to collect holiday birds.  Each Christmas I put up a garland on top of a set of 3 bookcases we have.  I fill the garland with birds, nests and houses.  I recall when I first started, it was pretty sparse, but now it's very full.  It makes me smile to look at all of the various bird ornaments I've collected over the years - some received as gifts and hold a special place in my heart.
