Birds Birds Birds and Yet More Birds

All that's left with "Shabby Chick" is the back stitching, and that ought to go along quickly. 
The weather this weekend is supposed to be mostly gray and rainy...not great gardening weather, but good stitching weather.  I hope to make it to the Farmers' Market later this morning - I need to purchase a couple of bouquets for Memorial Weekend.  I will go to local cemeteries with my sister, mother, and aunts on Sunday afternoon.  That is, after all, what this weekend is all about - not grilling on the barbecue!     

What do you see?

Darned sunflower-eating birds!  Everywhere!

A House Finch...

A Goldfinch

A Black Headed Grosbeak

A Steller's Jay

Evening Grosbeaks
We only have four pairs thus far - far fewer than we usually have.  I'm hoping yet more will show up as the month ends. 

California Quail

Thank goodness for the Barn Swallows!
They do not eat sunflower seeds!

Nor does the Rufous Hummingbird.

Shabby chick looks great. So do your garden birds :)

Ms Quail looks rather jaunty stepping out.
