Got lots of questions about my bird ornaments. Hallmark started this series in 2005 with the Cardinal. I didn't catch on until 2007, so my first bird was the Blue Jay. From that point forward I got one bird each year. Last Christmas my Sweetie found the Cardinal (2005) for me on e-bay or amazon, and my boys got me the Red-Headed Woodpecker (2009). I still need to find a 2006 Chickadee.
I just learned there is more than one bird this year. There is a Lady Cardinal ornament too! If you have any interest in these ornaments you should get them while they last at the Hallmark stores for $19.99. Collectors are selling the older ones for over $300.00.
