Red Birds?

I found these two fab finds at a yard sale this past summer...they have been pushed to the back of my closet just waiting for the chance to peek out...Well the time has come!  I have never been crazy about birds, truth be told I am scared too death of the crazy things, but with Christmas coming I thought hmmmm why not let them enjoy the holidays too? 
Someone told me at some point in my life that you are always supposed to put a RED bird on your tree..I have no clue who told me this because when I ask folks about it they look at me like I am crazy!  Me being the way I am I couldn't stop till I found the reason...after a fast google search I found that by putting a RED bird on your tree it is supposed to bring you good luck!  So I say.... the bigger the bird the better the luck?
As you can see these birds look very tacky and remind me of 1990 Home Interior (we all had the gold butterflies) but for 1.00 I thought I'd see if I could "Seesa" them up a little?
Here is the before.....The after hasn't dried yet!
