Rated 4 out of 5Â by Victorianist Beautiful and/but very big bird
I bought this ornament yesterday after eying it on-line for some time. Every year we buy the kids each an ornament and one of our girls always gets a bird. On-line, I was put off by the price of this ornament. Because it is not glass but plastic beads and glitter, the price seemed steep for quality. Indeed, when I saw it in store some birds were down an eye and a few were missing beads, since they are glued on.
That said, this bird is lovely. It reminds me of a quetzal, with its long, dramatic tail. It is also very large. It is on a dofferent scale from most of the Anthro ornaments that surrounded it. If you had a bird-themed tree, this could be a dramatic topper.
Also worth noting, the bird has both a loop for hanging and a clip. This is helpful, since it is so large. I looped it on a branch and then clipped to one below for better stability.
