Yard Birds© are whimsical, colorful creatures that accent yards, gardens, and entryways. Handcrafted from garden and farm tools, each Yard Bird© is one-of-a-kind.
If a Yard Bird shown on this page isn’t available, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Often, the artist makes several similar Yard Birds, so there might be one available to suit you.
The price of a Yard Bird depends on its complexity. Some Yard Birds include hand-machined parts, and so are more expensive. Yard Birds range in height from about eight inches up to three feet. Made of gardening tools and iron, they can be heavy and awkward to package. To simplify pricing, I’ve added shipping costs into the cost of each sculpture.

The Original Folk Art Yard Bird©
Whimsical, original, one-of-a-kind lawn and garden ornaments
Not all Yard Birds are birds. Whatever animals they represent, they look terrific almost anywhere. The artist made his original Yard Bird years ago, and it stands faithfully in his garden just a few feet from the back door of his house. The first ladybug-styled Yard Bird rests in a planting bed from which grows an old tree: home to, perhaps, a half dozen Yard Birds of varied styles.
Add some flare to your garden, yard, or entryway. Order a Yard Bird today.
Electrical Connection Box Spider
This is one of those Yard Birds that doesn’t resemble a bird. Still, a steel spider is the perfect defense if you’re concerned your garden or yard may become infested by steel insects.
Item YBID0006 Price: $45 (includes shipping to US address)
It’s a ladybug! The Yard Bird artist doesn’t make a lot of ladybugs, so it’s always a pleasure to see when another shows up in his shed. This Yard Bird (bug) stands nearly 11 inches tall and will ad a splash of color in a bed of ground-hugging spreading plants.
Item YBID0101 Price: $75 (includes shipping to US address)
Hand Trowel Yard Bird
Here’s a wacky idea: use a hand trowel to make the body, tail, and neck of a Yard Bird, and give it a silly face. Standing only 11 inches, this Yard Bird is a bit longer than it is tall!
Item YBID0017 Price: $52 (includes shipping to US address)
Black Garden Rake Tail
At 20 inches, this Yard Bird will greet you and your garden visitors with a quizzical look. This one will stand out especially well against a bed of red, orange, or yellow blossoms.
Item YBID0076 Price: $65 (includes shipping to US address)
Small Red Shovel Tail
This little red Yard Bird stands only 15 inches tall making it a great candidate for a small garden plot or a fireplace mantel.
Item YBID0087 Price: $62 (includes shipping to US address)
Starry, Starry Eyes
A star-struck Yard Bird with an unusual hay fork tail, this one stands 24 inches tall. These eyes are quite a departure from those of a “typical” Yard Bird.
Item YBID0091 Price: $90 (includes shipping to US address)
Hefty but petite, this little Yard Bird stands 14 inches tall. Its sunny disposition can brighten your garden or any room in your house.
Item YBID0102 Price: $66 (includes shipping to US address)
A modest Yard Bird, this happy creature stands just 13 inches tall. That’s getting small enough that you might find a place for it on your desk or bookshelf when the weather turns cold.
Item YBID0080 Price: $57 (includes shipping to US address)
Green Rusty Garden Fork with Yellow Beak
Here’s a Yard Bird that obviously had a long product life as a garden fork before retiring to the art world. This beauty stands nearly 20 inches tall and is ready for a life of luxury in your garden.
Item YBID0093 Price: $75 (includes shipping to US address)
Blue and Gray Hand Cultivator
At 8 and a half inches, this is the smallest Yard Bird I’ve ever seen. The artist made a modest number of smaller Yard Birds in 2010; only a few remain in his shed. When they’re smaller, there are more places you can display them!
Item YBID0059 Price: $55 (includes shipping to US address)
Green-Tailed Blinking Yard Bird
Another short, green-tailed Yard Bird. At 11 inches, this one looks as though it may be asleep, though I think it’s just blinking its eyes.
Item YBID0084 Price: $54 (includes shipping to US address)
Small Red Coal Scoop with Yellow Edged Beak
Nearly 14 inches tall, this inquisitive Yard Bird might fit better on a hearth than in a garden. It doesn’t take much space, and it looks as though it could shovel up ashes on its own.
Item YBID0061 Price: $59 (includes shipping to US address)
Small Red Cultivator Rake and Blade
Another in the artist’s series of small Yard Birds, this one is only 11 inches tall. Goodness, the name I gave it is almost that long. That beak! Those eyes! That crazy tail!
Item YBID0063 Price: $55 (includes shipping to US address)
Blue-Tailed Leaf Rake
Beakless and small, this 13 inch Yard Bird may be experiencing an existential moment. I imagine I’d feel the same way if I’d spent that entire summer in a garden shed. Save the poor thing from further confinement!
Item YBID0085 Price: $57 (includes shipping to US address)
Sky Blue Yellow Beak
Sky blue or baby blue? It depends on where you live! This is my favorite Yard Bird color combination. At 17 inches tall, this Yard Bird falls in the “medium” range: still short enough for a mantel or shelf, but tall enough to draw attention almost anywhere in your landscape.
Item YBID0103 Price: $68 (includes shipping to US address)
Black with Yellow Shoulders
A classic black Yard Bird! This design sticks in my mind from my very earliest encounter with Yard Bird lawn sculptures. It may be one of the artist’s faves as well because he makes several like this every spring. It’s easy to imagine a flock of these hopping about in the garden. This model is about 22 inches tall.
Item YBID0104 Price: $75 (includes shipping to US address)
Black Eyed Yard Bird
Black eyes? What’s up with that? Or is this Yard Bird wearing sunglasses? You decide. This one is 24 inches tall.
Item YBID0105 Price: $77 (includes shipping to US address)
Green with Sleepy Eyes
I love this expression! Who hasn’t felt a little droopy-eyed after a satisfying day of gardening? This Yard Bird is nearly 26 inches tall and it really pours on the attitude.
Item YBID0106 Price: $77 (includes shipping to US address)
Nearly 25 inches tall, this green Yard Bird would be at home in a tropical garden or a tropical-themed room.
Item YBID0107 Price: $77 (includes shipping to US address)
Yellow with Black Chin
Birds have chins? Probably not, but this Yard Bird’s lower lip is black to match its feet and toes. At nearly 25 inches tall, this bright yellow sculpture offers terrific contrast in almost any greenscape.
Item YBID0108 Price: $79 (includes shipping to US address)
Black Lazy Walrus Face
This Yard Bird may be destined for a career in comedy! Short, it stands nearly 14 inches tall. That’s 14 inches of giggles and certain conversation. Where couldn’t you display a Yard Bird with so much character?
Item YBID0109 Price: $67 (includes shipping to US address)
Four-Toed Mattock Bird
People close to him reported that the man who invented the mattock was an ardent bird enthusiast. Early designs for his revolutionary gardening and mining tool included feather designs molded into the metal. Little did he know that years later someone would tell lies about early mattock design. This modest Yard Bird stands almost 17 inches tall.
