An old pie funnel in the shape of a blackbird,these were designed to sit in the centre of the pie and 'funnel' the steam away to keep the pastry crisp.
This one is a bit odd with one eye,it is in the classic shape with yellow beak where the hole is.
Approximately 110mm high,good vintage condition.

There are more at the Ponsonby Rd shop at the moment,all slightly different.
