My sweetie and I adore real maple syrup. We have pancakes or waffles or a Dutch Bunny or something almost every weekend. drizzled with some Quebec gold. Nothing like it.
However, we found that using the bottle or a creamer for maple syrup left something to be desired. Either it ran down the side, or you got a huge glug of syrup and drowned everything on the plate. That stuff's expensive, don't waste it!
So I designed a small pitcher for us with a long enclosed spout for pouring. My sweetie said it really looked like a small bird, and so I made the next one with eyes and feet. Now I have them for sale.
Let me show you how to use your syrup bird. Fill him full of syrup, and then give him a warm bath so that the syrup us nice and warm:
Then you can use his beak to pour syrup in a thin, controllable stream on your breakfast:
See? No slopping syrup all over the table.
Oh, and the reason he has that "tuft" on the side is that's a 2nd spout, for pouring any leftover syrup back into the bottle when you're done:
For sushi-lovers, the syrup birds moonlight as soy sauce pitchers.
