For today’s blog post we have Songbirds, Songbirds Notecards, Songbird Stamps, and I’ve even included “Songbird” by Fleetwood Mac.
First to start off our morning I’ve included this 8 1/2 minute YouTube Woodland Birdsong: Sixteen Glorious Songbirds I came across that has sixteen songbirds – each with their own photo and recording in the slideshow format; this is the list of the sixteen songbirds included: Songthrush; Blackbirds; Robin; Mistle Thrush; Wren; Chaffinch; Blackcap; Cuckoo; Rooks; Chiffchaff; Dunnock; Skylark; Great Tit; Garden Warbler; Willow Warbler; and Nightingale.
There are ten different blank notecards in the set – with one each of one of the ten different songbirds with artwork that correspond to their stamp. In the notecards shown today, upper left, they are by the U. S. Postal Service.
The cards are 4.5 x 6.25 inches.
About the Songbird Stamps
“Illustrator Robert Giusti of Bridgewater, CT, depicted each bird perching on a fence post or branch embellished with vines, pinecones, leaves or flowers. The paintings appear against a plain, white background. Art director Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, designed the stamps.”
“The soul has illusions as the bird has wings: it is supported by them.” – Victor Hugo
Here’s to a great day ahead – and encouraging us to take ten minutes today to get a hand written letter into the mail!
