Sorry I am late today - internet issues delayed my putting together this post. I hope it is worth the wait.
In going through my stash - old and newly acquired, it became clear that I have lots of bird patterns. So I'll dedicate yet another month to stitching birds. First up this cute Hands on Design pattern.
Back to birds! "Really!" Parvati says.
Last week I had a very business-like V of geese flying south.
It's that time of the year, a time of transition.
There are only a couple of Band-tailed Pigeons still hanging around.
The Black-capped Chickadees are active.
Such sweet birds.
And I am now seeing both Golden-crowned Sparrows...
...and White-crowned Sparrows.
Besides the large group of California Quail...
...I must see anywhere from 25-50 American Goldfinches each day.
Upon close examination of this photo I notice that the birds second to the left is missing an eye, poor thing.
