I had been stuck on the final component, wiggling with it, and reworking it so many times, I then had to figure out how to fix the "fixes" as well.  Luckily, the copious amounts of coffee I had during the day kept me awake until close to 2 when the answer came to me out of the blue!  I was so excited I actually got up to go look at it to make sure it would work!

Crawled back in bed and woke up in the morning, ready to knock out all the final pieces.  Clearly, the Crafting Gods love birds, too!  I hope to ship tomorrow if I can figure out how to safely pack it...(is there ever really TOO much dunnage?).

Sorry to hear about all of the scary emergencies. Here are some birds to make everyone feel better. A Gyrfalcon and a Barred Owl from the place I volunteer...

Awwww, those are wonderful! I used to volunteer at our local raptor center and loved being able to be that close to the birds without bars between. It's an awesome experience. Thank you for sharing!

Received my first OTBT from sammylouise today!  I'll post pics tomorrow.  Guess I'd better hunt down the gallery!  Grin

In other news, my husband and I went to the Santa Barbara botanical gardens yesterday and we got to see an Acorn Woodpecker doing it's woodpecker knocking thing!  It was a first for both of us and super interesting.  I know that probably sounds silly to those of you who have a bit more of a rural life, but we're both city folks and don't often get to see stuff like that.
