These are the coolest little birds! The last time I went to the Mitchell Lake Audubon center, I saw tons of them flitting around us. I highly recommend a visit the next time you are in the San Antonio area on the weekend. Well worth the time to support a wonderful wildlife habitat.

Here is the latest pretty bird to join the flock – a Black Crested Titmouse! We get this variant down here in Austin, TX. I see them each and every day at my feeders and never get tired of their antics.

I always refer to this odd little wire bird house as the “Blair-Witch house” – it reminds me of those weird little totems made of sticks hanging in the trees in the movie. He looks quite comfortable here.

#1 in my Pottery Song Bird Series – here is the Black Capped Chickadee! He sold on Etsy within 24 hours of listing!
I have been an avid birder for a long time and love looking up into the trees and matching the silhouettes of birds to the vast number of templates in my head that I have been filing away over the years. I am now translating that storehouse of knowledge into creating hand formed and incised earthenware birds. These are my first three and they are pretty close to the actual size of the Black-Capped Chickadee, Black-Crested Titmouse and Carolina Wren. These are little birds that I see visiting my feeders every day and a pair of Carolina Wrens are wintering in our bougainvillea hanging basket that we have in our back patio hot house. Every night they sneak in and camp out up there in the warmth.
These birds need to be bisque fired and then glazed. I am going to attempt to glaze them in as realistic colors as possible and am anxiously awaiting enough of our pottery to bone dry so we can fill the kiln for the bisque. Soon!!
