I thought well, what if I try to make a fancy Ottoman bead and turn it into a birdie.
I tried and this is the result.

I have also been thinking about different patterning for the plumage. This time I made really plain plumage and decorated it with a layered flower. I like how this little gal turned out.
I am certainly still having fun with the birdies, but I am missing my beads too. Planning to work out getting two torches available in the studio - the big debate it a Y connection or quick connects. I am sure either will suffice in the end. Then I can have my Minor back and still use the Bobcat to make birdies.
