We had a very busy weekend what with one thing and another, so I don't have any new stitching to show. Since I'm featuring birds this month, I thought I'd toss in an owl stitch from my archives.
And while, I've not seen an owl, I did see an 'infrequent' bird.
This is a female Brown-headed Cowbird. The male is shiny black with a chocolate brown head. The female is 'quieter' in colors - her size and the beak helped me to ID her.
Lots of people do not care for Cowbirds as they are a parasitic bird. They find an active nest and lay their eggs in the nest, often tossing out the original eggs. The Cowbird eggs and babies are then raised by the other, often smaller birds.
I counted 16 California Quail the other day.
Everyone has paired up.
Sunday morning was rather cold and rainy.
The birds were extra puffy in defense of the weather.
