On the back of the card...

Barkley McClure, Pileated Woodpecker: a bird of few words, a bird of many words. He is not one to talk simply for the sake of talking. Instead, Barkley only speaks when he has something to say that he has thought about; that he feels will make a difference. But, he also loves to listen. And when he's doing the latter, you can almost hear the gears turning in his head. Philosophies shifting, ideas forming. His eyes sparkle like sunshine on the lake in his utter delight.

But, despite his love of company, Barkley is also a bit of a nester. He loves perching in the front window of his beautifully carved and comfortably appointed home rather than galavanting around town. This, understandably, would have made visiting with his friends difficult, but they had an idea. One day, a day quite a long time ago, they all joined together - for their own benefit as much as for his - and built a radio station within the tulip poplar tree that Barkley calls home.

From the very moment he first sat down at the mic, Barkley was transfixed.  To his absolute joy, and to that of the community, CBRK broadcasts 35 watts at 104.5 Mhz on the FM dial.  It is idea-changing radio, and Barkley wouldn't change a thing.

The details...

Note Card, A6 (4.5” x 6.25”) with envelope in protective cello.

On the reverse of each card is a whimsical tale of the animal featured. Entirely collectible, the stories intertwine, creating a much-loved community of characters.

We print on a luxurious 318 gsm, 100% cotton paper. Soft and durable, this paper showcases crisp detail and vibrant colour.

We fell in love with our beautiful goldenrod shade, 90# envelope. According to the ‘World’s Favourite Colour’ study, people associate the feeling of joy with this colour. Also, this is the very shade that enrobes our trusty #2. As all of our images are hand drawn in pencil, we thought it appropriate to give a nod of appreciation.

We donate a portion of gross sales to animal welfare.
