Pretty Birds! Grosbeak at the Feeder

Two new birds for us here at Wild Ozark. We’ve never seen either of these before. They’re both males.

About Wild Ozark
Wild Ozark is a nature farm. Mostly we grow rocks. I use those rocks and some of the herbs to make earth pigments and watercolor paints. We also grow native clay that I use for paint and various other things. And then there are the trees. We grow lots of trees. My husband uses some for his woodworking and some for our Burnt Kettle Shagbark Hickory Syrup, but for the most part they stand around creating good air, shade, & habitat for the ginseng nursery.


Follow me on Instagram to keep up with paints, art, and random nature pictures I make in real time.

My art and paints are available on Etsy! But if you're interested in owning a Madison Woods original, follow me on Instagram or FB because sometimes they go out the door as soon as I make the final post to say they're done.

About the voice behind this blog, Madison Woods
I'm a creative old soul living way off the beaten path with my husband in the wild Ozark Mountains. You can find my art on display and for sale at the Kingston Square Arts shop in Kingston, Arkansas. It's a tiny little town and a bit off the path to anywhere at all, but a wonderful ride out to a most beautiful part of our state. Besides homesteading, growing plants & making arts & crafty things, I write books and stories. My rural fantasy fiction, written under the pen name, Ima Erthwitch, usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks.

  1. Nice! I actually got a couple shots today of a male cardinal…with my cell phone. 🙂 He and his missus happened to be perched on the butterfly bush (at least last year’s dead branches of it) right outside our living room window and I managed to get my phone over there without scaring them off. Quite an accomplishment! Usually they spot a person and are gone in a flash.

    1. Great job! The cardinals here are so skittish too, and I rarely get good pics of any sort of animal because they move so much. At least plants stay put if the wind isn’t blowing, lol.
