Spring Thoughts of Nesting Birds

I've been wrapped up in genealogy work and a three-day conference here last week, but I did do some pages and a special bookplate too. Today, though, I did a new page for the AnnaLift of a photo of Dick's that I don't think I've ever done before. It is of a Semipalmated Plover on its nest in the tundra outside Churchill, Manitoba. That is in the far northern part of the province on Hudson Bay. You may know it as a place people go to see polar bears. We were there in June of 1980.

  1. That is a very pretty bird. I like your choice and placement of your elements, especially the map.

  2. Yes it is a very pretty little bird with its fluffy chest and that spot of orange on its beak which you´ve so cleverly echoed with the orange spatters. How lovely all your nature pages are and how informative.

  3. Fabulous page Jean, I agree with Helen and Theta, great choice and placement of elements and your nature pages are always lovely and informative... I always learn something new from you! :)

  4. Pretty and proud bird but the nest doesn't look very comfy or protected except possibly camouflaged by surrounding rocks and pebbles. Love the map and orange splatters!
