Put A Baby Bird On It!

By now, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the IFC show Portlandia and you’ve probably heard of the skit “Put a bird on it!”.  “In Portland you can just put a bird on something and call it art.”  If you haven’t seen the show, you probably think I’m crazy, so go watch the video and then come back (it’ll all make more sense).

Since I myself am a Portlander I thought it only fitting to do my own “put a bird on it” round up – cute baby clothes, nursery decor and toys.  Everything bird related and all of it for babies.  You could call it my “put a baby bird on it” roundup.

Man.  I feel like I’m typing the word “bird” a lot.  Bird, bird bird.

OK.  That’s enough.

See all the baby bird cuteness after the jump!
