Wednesday the sun shone and the cats were happy!
Lots of good Bird Watching.

Father Swallow stood guard outside his family's birdhouse. 

A pretty day calls for a Junco Dance!

I thought it looked as though he was dancing...

I told the cats they'd best get moving as a Turkey Vulture was checking them out.

I did see a family of Quail Wednesday while bird watching with Tom-Cat.  I didn't have my camera and they were quite far away.  There may have been as many as a dozen babies.  

This Quail Couple has no children.

High atop a Large Leaf Maple, this pretty little bird caught my eye.

I stumbled across a Robin's nest and got 'bombed' by the parents.

They were engaged in bringing back food for the babies and did not like me so close to their nest site.

I think the Hummingbird joined the Junco in a Blue Sky Dance.

Hope you are able to dance a Blue Sky Dance today.

I love the photo of the three cats on the three thrones! Very royal indeed! What lucky cats!

I also love the photo of all the birds of course. Congrats on another Ha-BEE-y finish! ;-)

I love the picture of the cats! Priceless!! I have enjoyed the bee themed stitching. Your knowledge about the plants and animals around you is extraordinary!

I've enjoyed watching your "bee" designs develop. I love bees, always have done. The photo of the three cats made me smile.

Veronica said...

Pretty finish. That bee button is so cute.

Your cats certainly look engrossed with the birds. I don't blame them. Must have been quite the sight. I like the hummingbird best. He looks so cute with his head tilted to the side :)

The cat line-up reminds me of the scene in Some Like it Hot when the band arrives in Florida! LOL :)
