I've taken am older Bent Creek 'zippers' kit and changed out the fabric to 28 count Light Mocha Cashel and the fibers to DMC & WDW. It's called "Blue Bird.
And while I've not seen any blue birds yet this year, I did have a new yellow bird return for the spring / summer.
A lovely male Western Tanager!
He's larger than an American Goldfinch and the flash of yellow and red caught my eye.
He is not a 'feeder bird', but was nice enough to pose for several photos before flying off.
This guy is a feeder bird.
A good old Scrub Jay.
I think the Juncos are nesting. I only see one or two instead of the dozen or more that I had this winter.
The Cedar Waxwings are also not feeder birds. But they have been hanging around in the evenings. I first hear their soft high-pitched call as they talk among themselves.
Then I find them in the trees at the edge of the backyard.
