Jamaican Tody bird gets legs at last.

I am adding the last little details to some of the Saffron Birds and the Jamacian Tody is getting some knitted legs and feet. I have tried to create a hand sized bird with different textures which can be held or carried around Saffron Gardens care home. 

Found only in Jamaica, the Jamaican Tody is a small and colourful bird, predominantly green above, with a red throat and yellow underparts, with some pink on the sides. It has a large head and a long, flat bill. It perches on small branches, with its bills unturned and, like its Cuban relative , takes insects, larvae, and fruit. The Jamaican Tody nests in burrows, which it excavates in muddy banks or rotten wood.
