Birds come in all shapes and colors. There are the bee hummingbirds which are considered to be the smallest in the group, and ostriches on the other end of the spectrum.

6. Turkey Perler Beads

While not the prettiest bird out there, the turkey is certainly one of the most flamboyant.

Its fan-shaped tail rarely fails to attract mates, especially when its plumes are as vibrant as goldflower has depicted in their turkey pattern.

A hand would almost fit on this turkey design, similar to these turkey handprint crafts.
