Signed and dated 3/25/1987; approx. 22” high x 26” wide, wood frame with glass. Ward Herrmann, author and artist, lived in the Catskill Mountains for seventy-four years where he also was an avid hunter, fisherman and photographer. He is perhaps best recognized as the author of the 1974 book, Spans of Time: Covered Bridges of Delaware County. His Delside Acres Studio was near Delhi, NY. Donated by Bob Davis.
The pin is carved from basswood and was hand painted in acrylics. The dimensions are 3” long x 1” high. It is signed on the back by the artist. See Bald Eagle print for information about the artist. Donated by Landa Palmer.
Each round plate is 8.5” in diameter. The birds included in the collection are the Snowy Owl, Great Horned Owl, Great Gray Owl, Short-eared Owl, Barn Owl, Barred Owl, Screech Owl, and the Saw-Whet Owl. They were produced under the hallmark of the Edwin M. Knowles China Company. They are objects of art and not for food use. Donated by Ruth Kazmierski on behalf of her late husband Joel.
Dimensions: approx. 11” high x 5 wide”. This hand-carved, life-sized model of a Chickadee was painted and mounted on a tree branch. The base is composed of a smooth river stone.
Approx. 11” high x 7” wide x 3” deep; made from Charley Harper canvas fabric; zips open along the top with one inside pocket and two outside pockets – one zips closed.

From the NY Times: Bringing Nature Home is..."a fascinating study of the trees, shrubs, and vines that feed the insects, birds, and other animals in the suburban garden.” As development and habitat destruction accelerate, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. In Bringing Nature Home, Douglas W. Tallamy reveals the unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife—native insects cannot, or will not, eat alien plants. When native plants disappear, the insects disappear, impoverishing the food source for birds and other animals.
The Audubon Birdhouse Book is the most authoritative book available for creating safe, sturdy, and easy-to-build homes for many of North America’s favorite birds. This updated second edition includes important new and timely topics including impacts of climate change on birds, nestbox monitoring for community science, native plants, and how birders can help birds.
