Beautiful!!!! You are so talented!


Thank you so much, Peter! High praise coming from such an esteemed wildlife artist as yourself. I've actually collected a few nests over the years but don't want to be selfish about it, so leave many outside for our little feathered friends to find shelter and warmth during the winter. Here I added the eggs since in reality they'd happily all hatched! Thanks again for your lovely compliment! Jeanne
