More Pumpkins More Birds

Next up!
"Horray for the Pumpkin Pie" is on my Stitching Goals 2011 list for the month of November - I've got it kitted up and ready to go.

We've had lots of bird action the past few days.

Our resident Avian Expert, Tom-Cat, helped with identification.  

I got a really nice shot of our female Hairy Woodpecker.

I even managed a close-up.

One of the Anna's Hummingbirds was in the area too. 

The Steller's Jays love our sunflowers.

It was nice to see a Scrub Jay too.

The finches are active at the feeders.

The male California Quail are such handsome fellows.

I was most pleased, however, to see my Red Breasted Sapsucker once again. 

 I've not watched long enough to know whether or not (s)he will be an All Winter Visitor.

I love the colors of your new start!

This is a really great variety of birds you have visiting. We don't get to see the Stellar's Jay or Scrub Jays here. And I don't think I've ever seen a Sapsucker, either!

Tom Cat looks just like my Furio - you can check out the resemblance on this post:

Tom Cat is gorgeous and I love your new start. Will you get it done in time for Thanksgiving, do you think?

Hugs, Kaye xoxox
