Swap Due Date – March 1, 2024
Signup/withdraw date – None - please communicate and allow sufficient mailing time.
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants – 25
Media- Open media with exceptions: No white edged stickers. No digital or prints. No heavy or thick embellishments.

Our theme is WINTER Birds - I love seeing the variety of birds at our feeders in the winter months. The lovely varied thrush shows up at our backyard feeder along with juncos. Our little chickadees are here year round as are the Annas hummingbirds and assorted sparrows and finches. In our area of the Pacific Northwest, winter birds include bald eagles up along the rivers and on the estuary flats along with snow geese, tundra swans, and assorted raptors. We even get an occasional snowy owl!
What winter birds do you see in your area? Show us!
Open media with exceptions: No white edged stickers. No digital or prints. No heavy or thick embellishments.
Your birds can be realistic or whimsical. You just need to represent a bird in winter.
Clarification:
the intent is to show birds that are in your general area. I don't see flamingos, so a flamingo in a hat and scarf would not work. However, a little brown or gray bird in hat and scarf could fit many little birds who winter in our area. Let me know if you have questions.

Lurk away, Kimmie! I hope you come back and join us. :)
 
I love winter birds! So far it has been too mild for the varied thrush to show up around here, but when they do I get so excited!

Please sign me up! Thank you!

I just had a northern Flicker visit the suet feeder outside my office window. This female sits on the branch and appears to be looking in the window at me before attacking the suet.
 
Please add me, Helen. My birds will be hand-drawn and whimsical, each with a true story inspiration. They are mostly from years ago when I lived in Northern California. Here in AZ I don’t see much variety, though my bird books say I should see this and this and this. Keep telling your bird viewings, and I will live vicariously through you!
