I've just spotted the rare and elusive "Follow Me" bird. He is hard to spot because as his name indicates he's always going somewhere, urging others to follow him. I think this year he has had an easy time trying to convince everyone to follow him to warmer climes. Most of the people I know, during this chilly winter, would follow him to sunshine and warmth without a pause.
I promised myself, after the first two punchneedle birds, that I would create brighter 'plumage' on future birds. And so, here is a bird to brighten the day. What a pleasure to sit here on a cold wintry day working with these bright colors and seeing a colorful bird appear beneath my fingertips. Say the words 'follow me' quite rapidly and you'll hear the sound of his call.
