The photo above shows three of the birds in my small collection of wood carvings. The Blue Jay, Chickadee and Red-winged blackbird are the work of the Rev. Gordon Elliott, of Schomberg, Ontario, back in the mid-1960s. The Cardinal, below, was carved by D. Phillips, of Green River, Ontario, in our centennial year, 1967.
The carving above of a Western Grebe was the creation of Liza Chiu of Toronto, Ontario, in 1987, while immediately below, is a charming Ruddy Duck, by Jim Harkness, of Stayner, Ontario, created in 1982.
Above is a sleek, stylized Common Loon by Ron Sadler, carved in 1983. Below is a beautifully painted carving by F. Smith. At the bottom is one more carving by Rev. Gordon Elliott of a Red-breasted Nuthatch.
