Brass Bird Shadowbox or two in the bush

I think I saw something like this somewhere in my prodigious reading and if so, I apologize to the originator.  If I didn't, maybe I dreamed it because that's happened more than once.  Sometimes I even dream that I'm reading, which really confuses the issue.
Since I got the rolls of thin brass and copper, this has been one of my goals but it took two attempts to get it right.  And a lot of playing around to figure it out.  I think I'll do a down-and-dirty tutorial when I get time in case anybody else wants to do a shadowbox.

There are a few things I'd do differently if I did another one and a few things that really show up in an enlarged picture that you don't notice at regular size.  But it was fun and I'm pleased.
