LOL, David!  :24: It would be something if the cockatoo could sing.  I love the line of the contrasting uranium he produced in the bird.  It makes for a lovely effect.  Livio certainly learned from the best (Barbini).

It is 6inches in height and 3 inches wide.  Not a very big bird but still impressive.

I wondered about that one. I thought maybe it was a word in support of the deaf community.

What a sweet birdie Tam Bam.  :)  I love neodymium glass and to have it combined with uranium glass is a real bonus.

Have you forgiven me for winning the Opalescent birds yet? :cry:
