A Bird for a Buddy

The egg side of the toy and then you flip it over and...
In C#2's school all incoming 1st graders are paired up with a 5th grade "buddy". Every year the kids are assigned new buddies until 5th grade when they themselves become buddies. C#2 has been very generous and kind to his buddy this year, and really wanted to give her a special gift. She loves birds, and originally he wanted me to knit her some mittens. 
A quick search on Ravelry, and I found this: Egg to Bluebird and a Little Nest, Too by Susan B. Anderson. He decided that it would be perfect for her, and I agreed. I think I even followed the pattern, except for the nest which I just quickly crocheted to the best of my dismal crochet ability.

Tadaa! It's a little bluebird!
Beak is wonky looking, but I thought the little wings were cute.
I even finished it on time!
