As always, great stitches for your monthly header! How interesting that the woodpecker was drinking nectar! Most odd!

I really like the photo of the hummingbird with the 'artistic" swirl of the blackberry blooms and green berries. Could make a lovely needlework of some type, couldn't it?
I never knew woodpeckers liked hummingbird nectar. Bet that long tongue came in very useful!

Such a great patriotic header, Beth! Even though I have a ton of red, white, and blue smalls--I haven't stitched a single one of these!

Love the header, and the birds. Such a great variety!

Barb said...

I am amazed at how well your hummers share the feeder.

The two ravens look like they are having a conversation. I would love to know what they are talking about. :) Beautiful header as always.
