Owls and More

Eastern Screech Owl

It looks like I will get to blogging about once a week. I've tried to sit down and do it more often, but there's only so much a person can fit into a day...
I do post pictures of my work more frequently on Facebook. If you'd like to get those posted directly to your FB page, look up Bethany Homecrafts and hit the Like button. My page would love to have more friends!

I've been working on owls this week, so I have something new and interesting to bring to market. It 's fun, but takes so much longer than other birds! The guy above is the gray phase of the eastern screech owl. You can hear what they sound like at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology

The guy below is a saw-whet owl, and you can hear his voice here. He's a really tiny owl, and his whistled hoot is as cute as he is. When you see his photo you'll see that I can't come close to doing him justice!

Purple Finch

Purple finches are really common where I am, but I don't get tired of them, they're so beautiful! Here's what they sound like, from Cornell.

This is my first try at a jumper for a little girl. We'll see how it goes over when I bring it to market!

Have a great weekend!
