Back to the Cross Stitch Archives we go!

This week it has just been the Regulars.

It is no longer a Big Thing to have two Hairy Woodpeckers at the feeders.
Two males.

A female and a male.

We like peanuts.

And mixed nuts.

Several Sapsuckers working close by.

They make the most usual sounds when agitated.

I can't get enough of their bright red head.

The red and yellow breast is pretty too.

Female Flickers are not nearly so flashy!

But that's okay, quiet colors in complementary patterns are lovely too.  

The Acorn Woodpeckers are busy, busy, busy caching acorns.  

The stop for grief refills at the peanut feeder.
A male.

A female.
I'll have a better sense of how many there are come winter. 

The young female Pileated Woodpecker has been semi-regular too.  I hear the bird most mornings and see her two or three times a week.

I've been enjoying all your lovely Goode Huswife cat stitches this week. Fantastic collection! Great pics of the woodpeckers etc too!

Your regulars are fantastic. I've been enjoying your posts on the wildlife in your part of the world. The recent migration of geese & the older post on the cougar and other animals were really interesting.

Definitely a GH cat design fan, aren't you?! Love seeing the woodpeckers... We have a few Downy's, but that's all (so far!!). Thanks for sharing! Hugs!
