A Baby is Born

Aren't these Norther Flickers gorgeous birds? When they fly you can see that the underside of their wings is bright orange. The female is also in this mural, foraging for food on the ground. I'll show her in a future post.


  1. I'm with OFB. Love flickers! I love seeing them foraging in the grass in our backyard. And I love the sound they make.

  2. congratulations to the new mother. beautiful work, jean....would love to see them in person. what is the destination for these panels?

  3. Amanita is both poisonous and hallucinogenic. It's what Woden ( Santa) fed to his reindeer to get them to fly in nordic myth. Just seeing them makes me high. You'll see them as Christmas( Jule) ornaments often. I can't wait for the unveiling of the Madrona. mural. Flickers rock.
