This is the very first time I have tried this but I am sure it will work. Many of the finials I use for bases come with a screw dowel on the bottom for mounting to a post. I merely turned the finial sideway and added a bird to it. —Then you can mount it to a outside post or firm surface inside if you desire. it is painted with 1-Shot enamel.–The bird was carved by Sam McKamie, tweaked a little by me.—This is one of two completed.
