Cream sugar, shortening, vanilla, egg and milk. Add dry ingredients. Divide dough in half, and add chocolate to one half. Roll white dough between two sheets of waxed paper into a rectangle about 5 x 15 inches. Roll chocolate dough into a log shape (like rolling "snakes" with clay, about 15 inches long. Place chocolate on top of white dough and roll white dough around it. Slice 1/4-inch thick. Place two slices side by side on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Press them together. Place whole cashew or almond for the beak and orange or yellow M&M's® for the eyes. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Let cool slightly on cookie sheet before removing them to a rack to cool.
