I changed my mind - I am going to have a stitching theme this month. The theme: August!
Eleven Purple Martins - wow!
That's quite a group.
One Violet-green Swallow family fledged late last week.
This house is still hanging in there.
I don't know how the other babies are getting fed, as this one is so aggressive.
Look at this banana-yellow small bird.
I heard it chirping and found it!
A male Wilson's Warbler.
See how much brighter it is than the male American Goldfinch?
These small birds migrate through most of the USA, but breed in the Pacific NW and north to Alaska and east into most of Canada and upper New England. They nest on the ground or low in shrubs. Then head to Mexico to spend the winter. They are so small, it is hard to imagine them taking, and surviving such a lengthy bi-annual commute.
