I kind of needed a quick easy puzzle after the last difficult one. This one so breezy I completed it in just a day- pretty much one long sitting, with photos every time I got up to stretch. The birds were fairly easy. I did have to slow down in the last few stages, the grass stems and indistinct white flowers a bit harder to do.
I like the image, how it’s not just a bunch of pretty birds poised so calmly next to each other- well, the bottom row is. On the top it looks like the flicker is lunging at the bluebird, who just took off to get away, startling the goldfinch. And a woodpecker is avoiding the ruckus behind the fence post. Amusing.
There was a bit of picture layer worn off one corner piece.
I used colored pencils to repair, hardly noticeable now.
It did make my fingertips quite sore. I would have put gloves on, except I expected to be done with it so soon. But it was irritating enough that several times during the puzzling I had to go wash my hands.
