Water Birds

  Spent the Holiday celebration by myself. Well, actually, not by myself , but with the Flu or a variant of the vermin. In fact, I'm still a wreak, coughing and keeping the dog awake, yep, I too sleep with a dog. It's been a while since I last visited to post anything, in fact I have but totally forgotten I even had a blog. Had not been for some (good) comments I received today in facebook, I would have been still oblivious to the fact. Oh, well, that's me. These are some birds of wood I still hold on to, except for the Yellowlegs which I offered as a gift of appreciation to a friend who assisted me with the logistics of a building project. JRV

A Few Birds of Wood

Woodpeckers


A Yellow-Shafted Flicker

A Puerto Rican Woodpecker
(Melanerpes portoricensis)
These birds look great as hangers on walls and /or attached to structural posts in homes.

Welcome to my BLOG.

 Statement of Purpose


 I figured there wasn't any harm in giving this a try.  Beside being able to write and respond to my own posts, I would hope to keep my small following of Chinese, Russian and Indian visitors amused and informed of my current projects, mood swings and other worthy matters. Those from North America who have visited the Blog, I hope, did enjoy their visits.  I do not use my webpage or this Blog to seek business, to promote hate or to seek love, it only serves to showcase my wood carving experiences and the end results, which may or may not appeal to you the viewer.
