A New Year’s Song

On the 3rd day of New Year’s, my true love gave to me:

3 plump Robins:

2 Doodled ornaments:

And 1 Northern Flicker in a Crab(apple) tree:

I took the bird photos from inside my kitchen window.  Isn’t that male Northern Flicker (Red Shafted) just gorgeous?!

Here is a photo of all 3 doodled ornaments photographed together:

As you recall, I posted the first one (on your left) on Christmas Day.

We will take down our Christmas tree and ornaments this week.  I couldn’t resist one last song for the holidays!

Happy Singing!

    • Hi Jodi! We were going to take down our decorations yesterday but after my nap, I wasn’t very motivated. The Flicker is a member of the woodpecker family. He has beautiful orange feathers under his wings. He has been chowing down on the crabapples for several days. 🙂 Hope you are having a great day!

    • Hi Kath! 😄 Thank you! We still have LOTS of snow but it has melted some from this picture. The temperature was in the low teens for awhile so the snow stayed on the trees making them so beautiful! ❄️✨❄️ Happy you like my doodled ornaments! xo

  9. Wow, Jill, love your ornaments, so detailed. It’s really strange, but Robins keep appearing for me, I think they are trying to get into my next story. I was given a mug with a robin on it for Christmas, I am reading The Secret Garden, with the Robin, a prominent character of the story, and now your lovely pics, such beauties too, really fluffy, much bigger than ours in Australia, they really do have that storybook quality about them. Thanks for sharing. Happy 2016.

    • Hi Delia! So nice to hear from you! 😃 Yes, it does sound like the Robin is trying to get your attention! I did another piece on a Robin that you can find under my category of “Song birds.” I took a song from a child’s story book for that post too that you may like. 😍 I think the Robins in my winter scene are extra puffed up because of the cold. It is quite fun to see them like this! 😃 Happy 2016 to you too! 🎉🎨
