Yesterday I posted a few updates from my phone. I was settled in for the day without being able to get my laptap to talk to the free wifi. I wrote about a new Red-Winged Blackbird in flight, but the photo never posted.
In my recent skin-on-frame experiments I utilized sheet steel to fabricate birds’ wings. I had some extra time Sunday evening and fabricated wings and tail feathers for a red-winged blackbird.
I picked up a plaid wooden croquet ball and used it to mount this bird.
I’m fairly pleased with the results, though these wings are oversized. There will be few more over the next few weeks.
