A new little wren, done on a scrap of silk picked up at the landfill. I'm still working on the rest of the background so no pictures of that part yet. Maybe later. I do love the way these little birds hold their tails so straight up in the air. I'm trying to learn the different sounds the birds make, but I don't seem to be able to keep them straight. I remember the easy ones, cardinals, jays, ospreys, the ovenbird, chickadees, and maybe even a house wren, but the warblers, vireos, the sweet little titmouses and nuthatches I can't keep in my brain. I guess it doesn't really matter, but it does make it a bit more enjoyable to know which birds are talking to me or scolding me for getting too close. After a long, cold, quiet winter, it's so nice to have these singers back.
