Last Friday, both floors of Highfield Hall were packed with people celebrating the opening of the Beebe Woods themed exhibits. The event joined the arts with the cause of preserving open space in Falmouth. Along with the art displayed throughout, there was a sound-scape piece and local poets read their poems about Beebe Woods. The curator, Annie Dean did a wonderful job of encouraging individuals as well as bringing together the different groups in town.
I learned so much about the birds of our region, while researching my contribution to the show, Birds of Beebe Woods (pictured above). I wanted to show birds of varying sizes, and the wren was one on the small side. They have such a characteristic stance, with their tail pointing upwards at a sharp right angle. I printed out tons of photos and illustrations of wrens and tried to copy their markings and feather patterns correctly.
An 18″ x 24″ poster and note cards of Birds of Beebe Woods are available in my Etsy Shop.
