Description
Though small, the Pajuspotka, or Whippoorwill, makes a bold statement with its unique design. Green rings wrap around the round body fading from light to dark, and a clear head reflects some of the green coloring, as well. The coloring and design truly represent the detailed art of glassblowing and why it is so sought-after around the world.

Nice way to start a collection

This is a rather common bird and makes for a nice entry level purchase. In my opinion you get a lot of bird for the money - hard to beat the description by Glassbirds. Although common and entry level, I have kept an example as the ring wraps hold my attention. Five stars in design, but lowered because of quantity.
