The birds are lovely and relatively easy to piece. The backgrounds are more tricky and challenging. Great puzzle for two or three people.
I had bought this puzzle a few years ago and lost a piece so I replaced it. The quality of the pieces is not as nice as previously and some of them were bent. I have bought other puzzles through Galison, which is of high quality.
I cannot say enough good things about this company! Customer service gets a million stars! I got sent a new puzzle quickly to replace the one that had a missing piece. I can’t wait to frame my new puzzle!
The subtle variations in background colors make this challenging over and over, and the birds themselves are beautiful (and also often more subtly different than you realize.) A very satisfying puzzle to complete.
Loved this puzzle until the very end when I found out that I was missing a piece :*( I had hoped to display it in my classroom, but alas won't be able to.
