And another chicken joins my group of stitched pieces!

The Violet-Green Swallows are getting serious about finding a birdhouse.  I've noticed that some of the houses have pieces of grass sticking out of the openings, so I think nest building has begun.

Here's an Anna's Hummingbird.

And a Rufuos Hummingbird.

Isn't this a pretty photo of a female Orange-Shafted Flicker?

I had two male Downy Woodpeckers on this small Maple, but I was not able to get a photo of both, darn it!

Here's a Courting Quail Couple.
Aren't they cute?

Peep is such a cute finish. All the birds look great. Our Anna's has been at the feeder a lot but I haven't seen a Rufuos.
