No. These were second-hand finds. The first was never used. The recent addition has some wear and needs a bit of touch-up. The heads look so similar. Welds seem a little different. But then, I don't weld so those are uninformed observations.

They're both adorable! My husband taught himself to do mig welding. I might have to put in a request!

As luck would have it, I was able to add another to the flock. Just landed this magpie (or green heron?) and it looks like it could be the same artist...

If I put them in the front garden they would probably fly the coop! Glare
