... and a blackbird in a pear tree?

It's the letter T at the ABC Christmas Challenge which is "Twelve Days of Christmas".  We're sponsored by the fantastic Stampfairy and I've used one of their images called Wilbur that I've not used before.

I read through the song, and decided to use the line 'and a partridge in a pear tree' as my inspiration.  However, I'm not entirely sure what a partridge looks like, so I'm kinda hoping that Wilbur looks sufficiently like a partridge.

(or at least a partridge in a fancy dress blackbird costume).

Or we could just pretend that the last line of the song is "... and a blackbird on a leafy twig."
