Poster Sketch: Feathered Friends

There’s something incredibly peaceful, even uplifting, about waking up to see a handful of robins grazing for bugs on the back lawn. Hearing the cheerful peep-peep of finches as they flit about on their tiny tasks is another wonderful way to start a day.

The sudden appearance of birds is one of the things that makes spring such a magical time of year. One day you’re wondering if you’ll ever see color again, and the next day you’re eager to buy some bird seed and make a few new friends.

This week’s Poster Sketch is dedicated to the return of our favorite birds, home from their yearly vacation and ready to charm us with their songs and antics.
