One of my visitors commented that she loves Chickadees (in reference to the Chickadee that I am stitching). I am also a fan of Chickadees and birds in general.
I can trace my love of birds to my grandmother who was a bird fanatic. She also did counted cross stitch and most of her stitching involved birds. Her favorite bird was the hummingbird.
|My favorite bird piece of hers in my collection - A Bluebird|
The state bird of Wisconsin is the American Robin. They were everywhere. After a rainstorm, the air was full of their song.
|They are much larger than a European Robin|
|The Black-Capped Chickadee, a spunky little bird|
|The House Wren, a bird you don't see but definitely hear|
|A bright yellow summer visitor - The American Goldfinch|
|We had Cardinals all year long. Their red color was a welcome sight when everything was covered in snow.|
|My favorite bird, the Nuthatch. This one is the Red-Breasted variety but I also saw the White-Breasted ones.|
