I'm so glad you guys liked this post, it was a lot of fun to put together. I'm always amazed at the flurry of fine feathered friends represented at The Coop. Hawks, eagles, owls, chicks, cartoon favs and real photography, salt and peppers, planters, plush, vintage and new, lenox and mccoy, it's all here.
