Fun Fall Bird

 

Design - "Plum Berry Sampler"
Designer - Bent Creek
Fabric - 32 count Touchstone linen
Fibers - GAST - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 2 February 2001
Completed - 27 February 2001

I'm most pleased to be seeing...


...groups of Cedar Waxwings close in!

This group is a mix of mature and young birds.

The two on the left are mature adults, the two on the right are youngsters.

The adults are very smart-looking.

Something about their frowny face - it looks so stern.

They were very quiet, so I was glad that I noticed them hanging out.

There's lots of elderberry, hawthorn, and blackberries to eat right now. 

Nice contrast of a mature bird and a youngster.  Enjoy!

Your bird sampler is lovely, Beth. Glad you had a group of Cedar Waxwings come in for a visit.

Wow. What a large flock of Cedar Waxwings. Lucky you. I've seen a few at a time and have heard large groups in the trees, but have never actually seen such a large flock. Great photos and fun to see the adult and youngster in the same shot.
