Gifts are a mainstay of the holiday season, from thoughtful presents for family members and friends to white elephant exchanges, Secret Santas, thank you gifts to service workers, and corporate gifts for clients and customers. This month, Be Your Own Birder is giving away a perfect gift for any bird lover, and especially anyone who adores ducks!
The Prize to Win
This month’s giveaway prize is a European-style, blown glass holiday ornament shaped like a floating mallard drake, with feather (not real duck) accents. The field markings on the piece are generally accurate, from the blue-green iridescent head to the white collar to the yellow legs to the black tail, and the duck has a charming glint in his eye.
While there are no obvious holiday touches – the duck is not wearing a festive cap, holding a candy cane, or sporting an ugly sweater – a brush of glitter does give him extra sparkle, and he can be displayed year-round as a fun piece to show one’s love of all things Anatidae.
The ornament measures roughly 4 inches long, 2.5 inches wide, and 3 inches tall, and includes a built-in hanger (hook not included).

How are birds part of your
winter holiday decorations?
For me, birds occasionally feature on the holiday cards my family sends, and I have a miniature bird-themed tree in my office. There is even some bird-themed wrapping paper that just might grace a few gifts!
