A new flock takes shape with the welcome return of wintering birds.
As windows open to bring in spring air, the silent waving of a pines boughs at my window is replaced with the voice of a living woods. Above the spring peeper’s persistent jingle, there is a growing jungle of sound.
Robins are warmed in the renewed sunshine as they search for dinner in the soft earth. Canada geese call to each other announcing “we’re back”. Crows and songbirds both add their voice as the world comes alive.
In the workshop a flock of fanciful birds takes shape.
Cutting, shaping and hollowing – look for birds with wooden feathers .
Come visit the new flock – they’ll be quite a few more wooden birds to watch for.
