New Sedge Warbler cross stitch pattern from our little summer birds series. The sedge warbler is a small, quite plump, warbler with a striking broad creamy stripe above its eye and greyish brown legs. It is a summer visitor, and winters in Africa, south of the Sahara Desert.
A new cross stitch pattern – Sea Eagle – is still in progress. There is not much left to do – finish the feathers and colour the surroundings. This eagle will be from the winter birds series, so please don’t expect a lot of colours. It seems to me that raw winter surroundings will emphasize the majesty of this beautiful bird. Do you agree with me?
We have some small birds cross stitch patterns, here I’d like to present you new – House Sparrow and Common Linnet.
House Sparrows live across many different regions of the world. Humans have not domesticated House Sparrows in any way. So, House Sparrows do not make good pets. Humans have attempted to keep them as pets, but they do not thrive in a household setting. Additionally, they are not the most colorful of birds, and their song is not particularly catchy or melodic.
Common Linnets were popular cage birds during the 19th century. Now they can be found in Europe, West Asia, and North-West Africa. Eastern and northern populations of Common Linnets migrate to the south during the autumn. These birds produce melodic, pleasant songs that consist of fast trills and twitters.
The scientific name of common linnet, “Carduelis Cannabina”, refers to the feeding habits of this bird and its affection for hemp (variety of cannabis). The common name “Linnet” refers to a fondness for flaxseed, that is used in the manufacture of linen.
In any case, both birds can be observed in my country, and you can cross-stitch them for yourself or as a gift for a bird lover 🙂 They are beautiful, aren’t they?
