In the past few months, Dave Tuttle of the Green Mountain Woodcarvers has taught three classes in which beginning and experienced carvers created first Wood Ducks, then Killdeer, and (in September) a black bear.
Dave Tuttle has also carved “comfort birds” out of wood harvested from the flood-damaged area. These small carvings will be used as a thank you gifts to donors to Bridges to Birds.
Bob Spear has slowed down his carving, but on occasion we still hear him puttering about in his shop.
Board member Dick Allen recently finished the female Bufflehead. She joins the male, which he also carved, in the wetland diorama.
