The Energetic Belted Kingfisher

I often spy these energetic little birds sitting on telephone lines that run along the river. When I’m lucky, I’ll see one swoop down, diving into the water with a splash to scoop up a meal. Hope you enjoy him!

    I adore the felt bird patterns! Thank you so much for sharing them. They are magical! Would you share some of your design techniques sometime? I was just curious as to how you come up with the patterns. Do you use bird field guides? They are just so fabulous! and I admire the fact that you so freely share the patterns. Thanks again.

      Laurie, typically I look at a few different images choosing the best features from each bird for the final pattern. Sometimes it’s a photo I’ve taken, sometimes a guide, other time it’s Google for inspiration.
