With this finish, I've officially started a collection of St. Patrick's stitches.
I'm a lucky girl! 

Saturday morning I looked out to see this small Sharp-shinned Hawk in the backyard.

He scared off all my song birds, but appeared not to have been 'lucky'. 

As we headed out Saturday afternoon, we met these three fine fellows coming up our driveway.

I think they considered themselves lucky as Easter dinner is usually a ham rather than a turkey!

The guys did a little turkey dance.

A Turkey Trot as it were.

They were very mellow - no gobbling.

And they were not the least bit bothered by us.

Off they went.

Places to go, people to see, things to do.

Bye-bye birds.

Am sure the turkeys were happy with Easter being a ham day. That hawk looks scary

Not the kind of yard birds I tend to see! Great birds.

I used to see wild turkeys around here long ago, but they disappeared, sadly. So much fun to see them!
