Doing it all again

I'd like to blame it all on the know, the Decorah eagles...those eagles that I watch every chance I get...
The eagle viewing lead to the stuffed bird making. If only it were true..then I could point to the source and say "this is why I am compelled to make birds." But it's not true.
  I found a pattern in my sewing room for a little loon Christmas ornament. The pattern is dated 1982...I made multiples for gifts that year.  1982! I was making birds 30 years ago!  What does this say about creative growth?  Or the lack of it...
Anyway, there was one lone loon cut out but not assembled..Here it is. 2011.

21st century loon

a pink ladybird
And I made this little pink bird last week.
And I made an owl today
just the body

legs and eyes, no wings or ear tufts


ready to take off
My bird frenzy continues,,,30 more years?

Those birds are fantastic! Do you have a pattern for a raven? And when is a raven like a writing desk?
