Cute Little Bird

Hello everyone,

Happy Spring! 

 Spring will bring beautiful weather, and with beautiful weather comes flowers, yes . . . lots of flowers, and cute little birds too.

This cute white-throated sparrow was carved by my dear husband. This is his second bird, and I think his doing an excellent job.  You can see his first one here.

I wish I can show you how this bird started, but I don't have any photos of it. Sorry!

The feathers have been burned in this stage.

All done!   I love it!

I went crazy taking photos of this bird!
So . . . BEWARE of the white-throated sparrow! 
(Zonotrichia albicollis)

White-throats often sing at night,
especially when the moon is full.

It's a delight to see our flowers blooming so beautifully!

I love fragrant flowers!
What about you?

When I was taken this photo, I found this

   lovely nest.  Which it's behind

this wreath,
  that it's hanging on the door of our cottage.

My hubby also built this bird house, the sparrows and the blue birds are fighting for it. Blue birds are winning, they already have a nest started.

You go Mister Blue Bird!

The photos below shows the begining of the new carving my husband is working on.

My husband says that the bird is inside the block of wood.
He most go and find it.

Sketch is drawn to the wood.  And then band saw.

After some rough carving, the shape of the bird is clearly seen.
(To be continued . . .)

Have a Wonderful Spring!

I'm joining . . .
