bird lover gifts

Today marks the first day of winter. It’s a time of year where most birds fly South and other animals go into hibernation. However, for the birds that stick around in the North, it is a great opportunity to bird watch. For bird lovers in the South, often it is the only opportunity to see different species of birds that normally reside in the North the rest of the year.

North or South, we have some great gift ideas for the bird lover near and dear to your heart.

Spring by William Morris

Spring am I, too soft of heart
Much to speak ere I depart:
Ask the Summer-tide to prove
The abundance of my love.

There is an interesting relationship between birds and statues.  I suppose that landing on a statue is almost as natural as being up in a tree, for a bird. Unless the statue happens to be say, a St. Francis of Asissi, to  we of the human species it is just plain funny to see where a bird will land.

 At, one of our favorite and most popular bird related statues is the Savannah Bird Girl.

 The Savannah Bird Girl statue was sculpted in 1936 by Sylvia Shaw Judson commissioned for a garden in Massachusetts. However, 4 bronze statues were cast from the mold and one ended up in Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah Georgia. For 48 years it remained a relatively unknown piece of art. Then in 1994 the photo of The Bird Girl Statue appeared on the best selling novel, “Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil” by John Berendt. Taken by Jack Leigh, a respected Savannah photographer, the photo showed the statue placed against a background of trees covered in spanish moss and created the perfect mood for the story. In fact, one can speculate that the way that the girl is holding the bowls conveys a weighing of good and evil although it is unknown if  this metaphor was intended in the original sculpture.  This concept of the moral weight of actions is clearly depicted in statues such as the many versions of the “Blind Justice” figure, also available at

Due to the popularity of the novel, the Bird Girl Statue had to be removed from the Bonaventure Cemetery. It can now be viewed at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah.

Sylvia Shaw Judson, the artist who created Bird Girl was born in 1897 and grew up in Lake Forest, Ill. While her notoriety was primarily limited to the Chicago area, her work was exhibited in The Whitney Museum of Modern Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art before her death in 1978.

Cast in a designer resin, this statue is available in three sizes for use in home or garden.
