A confusing fall warbler

Debra Burgin Confusing fall warblerI’ve tried to identify the bird in Nature Walk, but I just can’t.  Even my parents’ bird book (copyright 1949) was no help.  Their book was the one I used to create the most marvelous science fair project in grade school.  I remember the project being award-winning, but perhaps my memory has faded.

While doing this light research, I had to laugh when I read the category “Confusing Fall Warblers.”  Not that those pages yielded any more information, but I was emboldened to create a bird unlike any in nature.  At least unlike any in my books!

I made the mistake of over blending on the image that I had stamped in Early Espresso, and bad things happened.  And I needed more pop from the color.  VersaMark and clear embossing powder to the rescue!  I like the effect.  Not perfect, which suits me fine.

This is the last (I think) card using my free Sale-A-Bration sets — this one has been on my wish list for a bit.  The price finally got me!

  1. I’m so impressed that you did your research on this elusive species! The closest this one comes to in my Stokes Field Guide is the Kentucky Warbler or the immature female Hooded Warbler (because she has no hood!). Alas, your stamped and colored version is a rare beauty!

    I love when you share stories with us! Is that an egg stamp in the background?
