Framed - October 2015

I chose to get a total of three more designs in this series framed this year.  When I've shown them all, I will take a group shot and post it.

Many of my little birds appear to be every bit as happy as a lark.  

I am so pleased to have a large flock of Pine Siskins once again.

These birds will provide much of my winter bird watching entertainment.

Right now I have a mix of American Goldfinches (top of photo), and Pine Siskins (bottom of photo) munching away on sunflower seeds.

They both are small enough to use my 'cling' feeder.

And seemingly can dine together without arguement. 

I've counted as many as 12 Goldfinches and 20 Pine Siskins.

 The Goldfinches have never stayed here past October.  It will be interesting to see if and when they leave this year.

Sweet stitching!
Yes, isn't it lovely when they can share the feeder. We have doves here who are not so generous!

Happy as a Lark just makes me smile! Our American goldfinches stay for the winter. It's fascinating how the males go from such a vibrant yellow in the summer to so much paler during the winter but they are still delightful to watch.
