Je mehr ich über Vögel lerne, desto mehr drängt sich mir der Gedanke auf dass Vögel ziemlich egoistisch und unfreundlich sind. Um ehrlich zu sein glaube ich ja inzwischen dass alle Tiere gemeine Arschlöcher wären wenn wir sie nur verstehen könnten – außer vielleicht Kühe, Hochlandrinder etwa, die den ganzen Tag gemütlich vor sich hingrasen, […]
So, what’s with all the birds? And the sky?Don’t know about the sky, but I can tell you about the birds…. Like so many great ideas it started as a passing remark.Some time ago (over a year) at a birthday party there was this felted long-tailed tit (a present for someone else) and a friend […]
There are just two more birds to go. I’ll cover them both today, so next time I can finally show you what my secret felting project looks like (after about an hour of tedious assemblage.)The last seven birds all were flying, these two are sitting at rest on top of a little branch. The black […]

In German we say ‚Gartenrotschwanz‚ and the other, darker one is a ‚Hausrotschwanz‘ (because it fell down the chimney […]
The next bird of my project is a Robin or Redbreast or Ruddock – or Rotkehlchen as we call it in Germany:
I’v got another bird for you, this time it’s a sparrow.
Yet another bird from my secret ornithology project.It’s a yellowhammer bunting or Goldammer in German:
I’ve been working on a new, secret project. It involves needle felting, birds, a gift and a baby (not mine).
