It's Monday Once Again

My "Series Sunday" idea seems to be what it takes to motivate me to work on my current Cottage Garden Samplings project.  I've finished the border of "April's Daisy", and have made good progress on the sentiment.

Some of us are not interested in cross stitch - bird watching is our passion!

And on Sunday morning there was lots to see.
A female Northern Flicker wearing a polka dot jumper with striped jacket.

BOTH Acorn Woodpeckers were foraging for peanuts, though I managed to get photos of only the male.

The Chickadees patiently awaited their turn.

While the pushy Scrub Jays ran off everyone else.

Beth, I am constantly amazed by your amazing birds pics! I have never seen an acorn woodpecker - he is gorgeous. I really like the cottage garden series.

You have been making good progress on April! I think it is a tie between the flicker and the chickadee for cutest--but love them all!
