this would not be everyone’s cup of tea, I know but this writer would enjoy the experience of having the bluebird of happiness flutter to my shoulder for a quick peck of breadcrumbs or perhaps a sip of water.

wild & free avian accessories would make a modern adornment to one’s fashion statement.

birdlovers attired in such a manner would be in the happy position to snap close-up pictures of their feathered friends as they all, literally, meander along life’s highway

       With a chirp on your shoulder.

       Po, I've been searching, and can't find such a thing. Nice idea. I had a neighbor who would chew up peanuts and spit them into her palm and hold it up and stand there till a bird or two would come to her hand.

       Include an option for a bear trap with large jagged jaws to snap down on the necks of pigeons that might land there!   

       Actually, our first real spring/summer days have arrived and I am listening to the birds outside my bedroom window. You hit my soft spot. [+]

       Wonderful idea, apart from all the bird poop down your back.

       we are talking Joan Collins here you know :)

       What, bird poop foundation makeup?

       In an older Simpson's episode, Homer goes to a(n American) Football game with Ned Flanders. He is given a giant sombrero hat tp wear that is made of tortilla and filled at the top with nacho cheese. While this has nothing to do with your idea, I thought I'd bring it up here. Suet covered birdseed cracker shoulder pads?

       Great, [po]! How about sodding the other side for squirrels and such? Sure you'd need an ear-cage to keep the little buggers from nibbling it off, but you'd get all the cute bits of spring right on your shoulders.

       Nice.
Colored sugar water filled earrings should grab the attention of a humming bird or two. Would take care of that bird poop down your back problem too.
  

       OhOhOH sugar-water filled earrings! Now I'm inspired!

       What happens when you go inside? Are we talking bird-table racks beside hatstands here? ( not that I have a hatstand, personally, but there must be some people out there who are into private detective-style hat tossing ) Special bird-table facilities outside restaurants and public buildings? Bird-friendly cafes? Or are these more of an early-morning-walks in-the-park, leave-'em-in-the-garage-when-you-get-home type thing ? Just wondering.

       2fries/dentworth - that is great!

       Cuttlefish earings for your budgie.

       my budgie doesn't wear ear-rings.

       You could have an australian style hat with, instead of corks, those seed/fat balls hanging from the brim to attract tits.   

       Stop sniggering at the back.

       if I gave you a bun, would you still have a chirp on your shoulder?
