...the beak goes on....

....having sewn the teeny tiny beaks on the smaller birds, these larger breeds had theirs crocheted directly

Sewing the beaks gave more flexibility for positioning - 
a small stitch one way or the other makes a big difference to the personality of an individual!
However crocheting directly saved some time!
Some backside views....

Love chunky upsizing with multiple yarns and a larger hook!

It's amazing how the position of the beak changes the whole look of the birdie. Beautiful combinations of different types of yarn usual.
