What about sugar cookies?  You could make them in the shape of birds and have each guests name on them as the place holders or just decorated.

Birdseed hearts

Here are some links to purchase birds nests. Some are less than a dollar purchased in bulk.

 Here are a couple of instructions to make your own

“Bird Nest: I found an easy way to make a birds nest. 1) get a tuft of Spanish moss two times as big as your nest will be. 2) roll it into a ball in your hand (roll harder for the nest to be tighter). 3) flatten the ball between your palms. 4) dribble glue in the center of the ball. 5) use your pinkie or whatever finger to push a sitting place for the bird in the center. The glue will dry and leave the depressed place permanent.”

The spanish moss would make inexpensive bird’s nests.

Sorry I didn’t mean to make it look like we were hijacking that other post. That said, I love the little birdseed heart PP posted. That would be really cute. Or how about bird shaped cookie cutters? Not sure what your budget for favors is so I don’t know if that will be too expensive too.

Oooh what about these cute little bird houses?  For how many you would need to order it would only cost you about $1.06 per favor. The site says that for 12+ cases of 12 it is only $11.40.

ETA: should mention they are favor boxes not little wood bird houses.

Use chow mein noodles and cocoa crispies to make the nests. They are so yummy and fun!
