Two budgies

Thanks to Penny for suggesting, budgie in a trilby. I don't know why but I find birds in hats all so amusing. I think I'm going to start adding colour to these critters, but they need to look more ridiculous! If anyone can help me out with more stupid/ genius combinations, that'll be great. Also, Garreth has kindly sent me a ludicrous link involving some sparrows dressed up looking stupid. I like it a lot.

Oh wow!
These are great suggestions! I like the afro wig idea and the cat mask one. This should keep me busy for ages! Ta loads!

This made me smile, and such a great idea.
Check out http://url123.com/vzxew of photos of pigeons wearing hats.
Can't think of any suggestions, apart from Magpies in balaclavas with swag bags and Wood pigeons wearing hoodies.

Thanks for your comment. Love your birds in hats (also vistited the sparrows and laughed). I've been to your blog before, but never found my way back. I'll bookmark it now so that does not happen again. Really love your skyline for IF!!!

Something - anything - in whatever hat The Undertaker wears. I think it's a fedora, but I may be wrong. Also, despite being an obvious choice, stetsons enliven any picture.

It would be so fun to color one of your pieces.

These characters would make a great story, can imagine that policeman keeping an eye on those 2 budgies. I keep thinking of knitting, washing lines, gossiping birds in aprons..
I am looking forward to seeing more!
Penny.

This image has a real sensitivity to it that makes it work for me. It just seems like the hats belong in the image and it gives it a certain amount of class. Good job.
