the birds return
This was an unusually-shaped postcard that I made and mailed at the beginning of my making collages, in late April 2010. The card was about 8 inches in diameter. All the birds are species I see in our mini-forest of a backyard in suburban DC. If I were making this card today, I'd be able to add a huge pileated woodpecker, since I saw one in our yard last year (!). They are all exactly to scale with each other: that part took a long time to accomplish.
Apologies for the fact that it's not scanned very well: operator error.
