Wild Bird Puzzle for my Bird Room

I kind of have a bird "theme" going on in my bird room (Libby and Angelina's room), bird houses too. I've got a couple of bird wind chimes, two bird clocks, etc. -- bird stuff -- seemed a natural!

This is my latest addition. I was picking up a couple of jigsaw puzzles for my elderly neighbor (yes, older than ME!) and saw this puzzle. It was a bear to finish, because all the pieces were basically the same shape. It's long and narrow, about 11" tall and 33" long. When I finished it, I sealed it with puzzle glue and we mounted it to cork boards. We hung it today. It's up at the top of the wall, over Angelina's cage. I'm really happy with the way it turned out -- what do you think?

It was hard to get a good picture of it, since it's up so high and Angelina has a playstand and UV light on top of her cage, but here it is:



It was fun, but I'm glad it's finished!

Thanks, Shannon!
Thanks, Sally!
Thanks, Jessica!

And ParrotletsRock - I can't believe it! Wow! It was sure tough to do, with all the pieces looking so much alike! It was on our kitchen table so long, it drove me crazy! The hardest part was that sky with the hazy looking trees in it! I love it now that it's finished, but that thing tried my patience!

Jo Anne,
That's absolutely stunning! What a creative idea too. I bet the birds really like it too.
