This one proved to be the most difficult of the puzzles we’ve done so far. In addition to the challenge of the similarly-colored birds and tree trunks, it had many very bizarrely-shaped pieces. It is nice, though, and we are thinking of keeping it as a reference for the many woodpecker varieties we see in the backyard.
We completed the 1,000-piece Mallards puzzle rather quickly… except for the final 250 pieces or so of sky: all subtle shades of blue, white, beige, and gray.
For Christmas, Trisha got me a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle featuring two Brittanys tracking a pheasant. This appealed of course to my obsessive/compulsive tendencies and for a whole week we spent innumerable hours hovering over the dining room table. I recall doing many jigsaw puzzles as a kid and they are just as addictive now as then. Those Brittanys are regal beasts, though.
