I started Mosey 'n Me's "Folk Art Cat" back in November and it has not been part of my regular stitching rotation. Last night I took it back out and stitched a couple of more stripes.
I received MUCH stitching encouragement from the Cat Crew.
While I still see a "V" of geese once in a while...
...I am much more likely to see a group of Turkey Vultures flying overhead.
My large group of Pine Siskins is still hanging out. In a couple of weeks when this Big Leaf Maple buds out I will not be able to see them as clearly.
I will still be able to hear the Siskins - they are noisy chatterboxes!
A group of 6 like this one can sound like 20 birds.
And look who was hanging out with them!
A female Lesser Goldfinch.
And she was not alone - she's on the bottom and the male Lesser is on the right.
Last summer I had two or three pairs of Lessers.
I am hoping that will be the case again this summer.
Speaking of pairs...
My covey of Quail number seven - four guys and three gals. Now the covey has six members - 3 guys and 3 gals. The seventh member - this bachelor has been banned and wanders by himself - lonely and more at risk...
...from predators like this guy!
