Look who is gathering atop
Jacklyn Anderson's Christmas tree!

Who needs all those store-bought Christmas tree ornaments when you could have these?!  With some felt and yarn, and the cool bird patterns from Downeast Thunder Farm, you can make your own bird ornaments, and the patterns are free!

There are quite a few bird ornaments that you would never find at any store, or even at a craft show, like the Great Blue Heron, Baltimore Oriole, or the Downy Woodpecker.

Check out the kingfisher!  With a few alterations you could easily fashion her into a Belted Kingfisher.

And for those of us who never were able to catch a glimpse of the Winter Wren at Gilbert Water Ranch, we can now make our own, perky tail and all!

Special thanks to DBG docent Jacklyn Anderson for 
sharing these bird ornaments on FaceBook.


  1. These are great Peggy! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Discovered these too late for this year -- but they're a good project for next Christmas. Thanks for sharing, Peggy & Jackie! They're beautiful.


Do you have an event, bird walk, meeting, or nature walk that belongs on this calendar? Please send info to
