Set of 2 Antique Bird Prints – Birds in Autumn

This set of beautiful bird prints both came from a 1920’s bird book, and show birds resting on oak tree branches, with acorns still attached to the branches.  They are perfect for Autumn style  framed wall art, and would make lovely greeting cards as well.

This pair of birds are called Firecrest.

When my oldest son was around 12 years old, he became an avid bird lover.  He studied birds, he drew birds, he learned to identify their calls, and the only thing he could talk about was birds.  He even went on bird watching walks with community groups, and was usually the only person under 40 in the group, but he didn’t mind one bit.  I can rarely tell one bird from another, unless they are very common birds with obvious marks, but I have a real fondness for pretty images like these, because they remind me of that precious time in my son’s life when he just couldn’t get enough of birds.

I hope you enjoy them as well!

  2. Birds are beautiful any time of year, aren’t they? When I was a kid, every spring the Des Moines Register printed a color spread of birds. It was a regular poster on my bedroom bullletin board, and like your son, I loved to draw birds too. Thanks for the pretty post.
