For Cooper's Flock

I heard about Cooper's Flock on Susan Anderson's blog, and I knew I wanted to pitch in. Lucinda started Cooper's Flock in memory of her son. (Read more on her blog.) Her local children's hospital, where Cooper received treatment, performs 270 heart surgeries a year, and she wanted each of the children to receive a hand-made bird on the day of surgery. She's collected almost 400 in just a few months! Knitters happen to be nice people. These guys flew off to join Cooper's flock today.

(Sorry the pictures are bad. They're hard to photograph.)

My friend Libby is having a little girl in a few weeks, and her nursery is decorated in a bird theme, so I made two for too.
