This out of focus photo shows from left to right, baby Red Eye, dad Dart and mom Pepper Dotty. We believe Red Eye hatched 5/14 and should have fledged a few days ago, inspiring the following:

An only child                                                                                                                                       So always under                                                                                                                       Parents’ watchful eye

She eats and naps                                                                                                                            And eats again                                                                                                                                  And barely moves a thigh.

Have you ever heard                                                                                                                         Of a baby bird                                                                                                                                 Who got too fat to fly?

The following photo, taken 7/10, shows Red Eye finally doing wing exercises. If your wings were that long, imagine how heavy they must be! It would probably take you awhile to  start flying exercises too!

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
