Natural Bird Art!

This weekend we went to the cabin and I made birds out of natural materials. I made the Magnolia Warbler, Mallard, Black-capped Chickadee, Bald Eagle, Ruby- throated Hummingbird and American Robin. 

 The American Robin is made out of charcoal (black), Oregon Grape root (yellow), roten log (orange), sand (gray), and a stick.

The Magnolia Warbler is made out of yellow Alder leaves, ashes (white), charcoal (black), a combination of ash and charcoal (gray), and twigs.

The Black-capped Chickadee is made out of ashes (white), charcoal (black), a combination of ash and charcoal (gray), wood pieces (pale pink), and twigs.

The Mallard is made out of Pondarosa Pine bark (brown), Oregon Grape leaves (green), and a wood chip(white).

The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is made out of many leaves (green + red) and a twig (white).

The Bald Eagle is made out of lichen (white) and Pondarosa Pine bark (brown).
