Birds were considered the harbingers of spring thus they were a commonplace pysanka motif. Birds of all kinds are the messengers of the sun and heaven. They are usually portrayed on pysanky perched; swallows, though, are shown in flight.

These are some of my early bird pysanky, featuring both traditional and nontraditional bird motifs.
