Tigers and Waxwings

Soon it will have been a year since I began stitching this Mosey 'n Me design. I did work on it a bit and got some more of the stripes stitched. 

My Tigers are telling me to get a move on and get that cat stitched up!

On the bird front, with the departure of most of the Evening Grosbeaks, it is nice to have Cedar Waxwings most everywhere! 

I am seeing a flock of 16 or so birds most days. 

They gather in a group before taking off for the night.

Here's the group I saw at the Farmers' Market.

I had a couple of smart looking gentlemen stop by the backyard.

You can see the dot of red on the wing - the 
'wax' that gave them their name.

This one looks particularly grumpy to me.

Frowny Face!

And here they are again at the Farmers' Market.

Such beautiful colors.  Look at the bottom right of the photo and you can see the bird popping a berry in his mouth.

Oh yeah! That berry is as big as the bird's head!! I really like that Mosey n Me design, and also want you to finish! :)

I think these birds are among the most photogenic birds I've seen.

That's a really cute Mosey n Me design! Those waxwings are such handsome birds. I always think they are dressed for a wedding or something! ;-)

Such cute cats, both the real and stitched ones. I love the soft colors of the cedar waxwings.

Like that cat. I've seen a couple of unusual (for us) birds in the yard of late, and you've inspired me to look them up. (A northern flicker and an eastern whip-poor-will.)
