Featured Print: "Such A Pretty Day"
Spring is just around the corner here in Oregon! The daffodils are starting to open in the valleys, so the tulips and the goldfinches can't be far behind.
I participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count two weekends ago and counted birds in the Coastal Hills north of Willamina-which is a beautiful mix of woodlands and conifer forest.
There were juncoes, robins, towhees, song sparrows, a varied thrush, chickadees, nuthatches, stellar jays, mourning doves, and best of all, a flock of 40 evening grosbeaks (watch for photos in a future post). To see the results of the Bird Count for your own neighborhood, visit this site:
This watercolor painting is called "Such a Pretty Day" and it is available as a limited edition print at my ebay auctions, (auction ends March 4) and also on t-shirts, note cards, and giftware at Susan Faye for Nature Lovers
Thanks for visiting! Susan Faye
