Pecke’s Feathers:

A few weeks ago we lost one of our 2 resident Hairy Woodpeckers. I wrote about it here:

Today I kept my promise and made the first pairs of earrings from his feathers.

Here they are:

Hairy Woodpeckers have mostly spotted flight and tail feathers. Just one pair of tail feathers are different: the ones the Bird uses as “struts” to balance and stabilize his body while he is pecking into tree trunks. The tiny red feathers are from the back of his head.

.I still miss him 😦

A friend of mine has a very special spiritual connection to Woodpeckers.

She will receive one of these pairs.
