Hi, does anyone know where I can purchase a pattern and instructions on to make a "dancing" bird from PVC material? Very much appreciated!
You are asking about the PVC Florida Dancing Bird and the picture you show I believe is of a copyrighted bird so you may not find this pattern as the company sells the completed birds and does not sell the patterns.
There are several other styles but not very many of any type of 'dancing' birds.
Here are some links to different designs that have patterns for several birds but all are downloads the I have found which means you will have to print the pattern and enlarge it to whatever size bird you wish to make.
You can find several sites with instructions on how to make PVC birds but not the one you have pictured. I'm sure you realize that making these birds is not a 'simple' project but, if not, please watch some of the videos and some instruction links to see what is involved as several tools are needed to even begin the work.
This video was taken by QVC and these were posted for sale for a short time so I do not know if these were actually made by the Florida company and sold on QVC or if someone almost copied one of their designs as the link to QVC does not even take you to QVC any longer which means they will not be selling these again.
I think you may have to be satisfied with making one of the other designs. The Egret is certainly a neat looking design.
Good luck - have fun.

Start with a closet flange (toilet) and build up using 4" PVC. This flange lets you use tent pegs to secure it to the ground. Prime and glue flange to first tube. If you want a place to hang a sign, use a 4" T with the small side for 2" pvc . Glue this in as well. Drill a 2" x 18-20" piece of PVC for and add cup hooks and then glue on an end cap to the tube.
