The Wild Birds Jigsaw Puzzle if filled with an array of birds, many of which I have heard of and so very few I have actually seen. The Robin was pretty common to see and the Bluebirds along with Cardinals were rare. The Sparrow was another visible one however I do not see the Crow or Raven which are a constant where I have lived.

Wild Birds Jigsaw Puzzle Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards.

The border was a little tricky with the shades of brown and random shaped pieces. I started with the most colorful birds first. The text was next and fairly simple - some text on puzzles can be quite daunting so I was pleased this one went well.

After the text was in place I worked all the rest of the birds. That left only the green leaves and the shaded background which consumed most of the time.

Wild Birds Jigsaw Puzzle Comments...

The matte finish is always nice on these puzzles.  Cobble Hill jigsaw puzzles continues to come out with some really awesome images and I guess that's the name of the game in this business.

Sadly in this case there was an 'escapee' piece and even though I scouted diligently, it continues to evade me at this time. Fortunately Cobble Hill Puzzle Company has this link to request a replacement which is terrific Customer Service. It is not just for missing pieces but also for damaged puzzles pieces. It is a good idea to use this service because it lets the Puzzle Company know the condition of their products. So now I will receive a second puzzle and find the missing piece!
