I've started stitch the Amy Bruecken design "Bee Good or Bee Quiet". As with all her designs, the colors are loud and cheerful.
The birds have been loud and cheerful from atop the trees.
A female Purple Finch.
A pair of Scrub Jays.
A young male Red-shafted Northern Flicker.
Note how plump he is and that the red mustache is small, both signs of a newly fledged bird.
This Spotted Towhee looks a bit crazed as it sings away.
Red eye and red mouth.
The male Black-headed Grosbeak has a lovely song.
He looks a little disgruntled here.
A trio of Band-tailed Pigeons.
I am so pleased to report that from a high of over 50 birds in early May, I now see an average of 15-20 birds. Much more manageable.
An Anna's Hummingbird scratching and preening.
A Raven certainly has no song!
Nonetheless, he had much to talk about.
