I figured this bird would be great to emboss and the chalks would fill it in beautifully. I was inspired to add a bird to my project, because I am keeping an eye on two grey doves in my backyard. As we were trimming the palm leaves a couple weekends ago I noticed the nest and two little eggs inside. We left a few palm leaves to protect them. They hatched last week and momma bird is taking care of them. My beagle knows there is something up in the tree and will bark repeatedly at the momma bird when she sits on the nearby fence. I continue to bring my dog back inside and give the birds some peace and quiet!
