Birds, Birds, Birds

More Chickens in my coop!
I'm 2/3 of the way done with "Chicken Sampler".  As I stitch each new chicken with its unique color combination becomes my favorite.

While taking pictures for my Wednesday Walk post, I observed a few critters out and about...

This Wren was almost hidden in foliage.

One Pond Turtle basked upon a log.

My Mallard quietly floated along.

On my return home I saw...

Mrs. Violet-Green Swallow has set up housekeeping.

Mr. Violet-Green Swallow ruffles his feathers... 

...and then settles down to keep watch.

A Quail Couple on the move!

"Did you bring anything special today, Lady?"

"Ah...peanuts!"

"Just strolling by...not looking at all the plants on the Back Patio...I promise!"

Your chickens look great and I just love wrens, they are such tiny birds. We sometimes see them in our back garden but they are so small and move so quickly it's hard to catch sight of them.

Thanks for sharing the wildlife pics too. If I lived where you live, I don't think I'd ever get any work done.
