Atlas Bird for KOP (tiny) - Oiva Toikka 1986 Nuutajärvi Finland
This is the 'baby' bird of the Atlas bird family by Oiva Toikka 1986 for KOP bank (Kansallis Osake Pankki). The tiny Atlas bird has 2 feather pulls. The bird is golden-orange inside and has a greenish semilustred cover on top of the blue stripes. There are some irregularities in the lustre layer in a couple of areas in this individual that seems to have arisen at manufacturing. This shows under certain circumstances when light hits the surface in certain ways. Both these areas can be seen on both sides of the 'shoulders' on the close up photo of the hidden orange inside world, that can be sensed by looking through the top of the head.
There is some confusion in the presentation of these KOP birds in the book "Birds by Toikka", as there is no picture or adequate description of the small KOP bird. Instead, under the heading Small Bird for KOP a big KOP bird is described.
On the last pictures you see this tiny KOP bird posing together with a large Atlas bird and a medium sized Atlas bird and also with our other Atlas 'baby' bird.
