Theme Thursday - Birds



Again, alphabetica changes that demonstrate my strange sense of humour. They still make me chuckle I'm afraid. I was thinking about "family" when I created them....not just human families but also bird families. I had received pages from a vintage bird book and found the descriptions of bird parents looking after baby birds to be hilarious. The bird parents seemed often weary, frustrated and fed up with the little ones' antics. They were also proud of them and protected them and nutured them fiercely. I thought to myself that this isn't really much different to the relationship between human parents and babies. These pages are my entry for this week's Theme Thursday challenge.
