The second word looks definitely like Murano but the wild scrawl is a bit much. The bird also has an evil expression - I don' t think I would allow it in the house. Welcome to the board - hope someone is more tolerant over angry birds than I am.

Hi and welcome to the board!
Might it say "Oball Murano"? (The signatures I found on the net seem to vary widely).
As far as I know Oball likes to use this colourway...

Here is a similarish bird on ebay with a sticker >> Link

Hi Kendrav,

Please do not take this the wrong way, but your bird is not the same as the eBay one that Rocco linked to. It has very similar head and body shapes and the way the colours are worked are also very similar.

However, your bird has many more tail feathers than the other one and the wings are of different shapes. It would be useful to know the dimensions of your bird. Are they similar to the other one?

(Having said that, I personally feel it is likely to be an Oball bird.)
