Weaving for the Birds
Designed and woven by Elizabeth A. Cote
This outdoor banner was inspired by the nesting songbirds that visit my home. I had placed an outdoor banner on my front door and to my surprise, found that the birds were picking at the fibers as they gathered nesting materials. After researching safe nesting materials for a variety of birds, I designed and wove my first Weaving for the Birds and placed it on my front door. To ensure the health of the birds, all nesting materials were chosen after consulting The Cornell Lab of Ornithology site.
