I think this is the first month this year when I've been able to start a themed stitch at the beginning of the month. This is an older pattern (1998) and I quite like it all these years later.
And now on to the July Bird of the Month.
A winner in sheer numbers - the California Quail.
This first two photos are of one of my childless couples.
Here's a group of babies in the backyard...
...with Papa Quail standing guard from up on high.
Watching, watching, watching.
A good Dad.
And another couple.
