Up High and Down Low

I don't have much in the way of stitching progress to show, so let's take a look at what my Mom has been up to.  She's working on a Lizzie Kate 'stamp' stitch for the month of July and is doing a great job.

With the coming of autumn, I am seeing more hawks more frequently.

The Steller's Jays can mimic the cry of a hawk perfectly.

The Red-tailed Hawks are not a bother, but the smaller ones like this Sharp-shinned Hawk prey on small song birds. 

I think this is probably my last photo of a Western Wood Pewee as they are only summer visitors.

I still have LOTS of California Quail including some rather scruffy looking adolescent birds.  

This youngster is much better kept.

This family has the youngest and littlest chicks by far.  They started out with four chicks and are now down to two. 

Who's to blame you ask?
