Blossoms and Birds

I'm stitching this literally 'blossom by blossom'!  Then on to the stalks and leaves.

My new camera allows me to 'zoom' farther with greater clarity.  See the Red Headed Sapsucker.  He loves the metal roof on this birdhouse.

A Steller's Jay awaiting breakfast.

The Violet-green Swallows house-hunt each morning.

I think this Robins looks as though he's just asked a question.

My pair of Lesser Goldfinches were back at the feeder.
No sign of American Goldfinches - last year they returned on the 22nd.
