Friday at the Feeder on Saturday

I'm so confused, the days are getting way far away from me now.  Not sure if I ever posted this Blackburnian Warbler.  After doing several studies of this little guy in watercolor and pencil I painted this bird model and it was accepted to go on display at the Yale Peabody Natural Science Museum in New Haven, Connecticut.  Thrilled beyond belief!
 The preparator will eventually put real legs on him before mounting in the display case.


  1. Your claim to fame, mazal tov! An honor indeed, of the best kind.
    It will be nice when the birdie gets feet, though.
    Gosh, I never heard the word preparator. Thanks for that.

  2. That is an honor! Congratulations, Suzanne.
