Friday Wrap Up

I'm working on the male Western Tanager.
I think next week I'll have a finish to share.

Oh but we've been enjoying our sunny September days.

On Saturday I heard the mechanical chatter of a Belted Kingfisher.

A male flew in quite close...

...and was kind enough to stay for a while!

That's a bird with a beak that means business!

Females have a belt of brown on their breast, while males do not. 

They both have a rather wild Mohawk hair-do.

I had a Belted Kingfisher come by last year about this time.

My sister and I thought we heard two birds Tuesday evening, so maybe I'll get to see them again.

I just love September! I like your new cat stitch as well (and your birds from Heartstring Samplery).

Vickie said...

Ha ha! Your kitty cracks me up! ;)

What a beautiful bird! Your kitty looks so content in the sun.
