I'm not managing to stitch much this month, so here is yet another trip back in time to the Cross Stitch Archives.  I do like this scrawny black cat and his purple house.

Another gray morning.

The Steller's Jays were out in force.

I'm hearing and seeing Black-capped Chickadees.  On Wednesday I caught a glimpse of Townsend's Warbler hanging out with the chickadees.  Of course, I did not have my camera!

If there are two Oregon Juncos, then there is probably a scuffle!

The House Finches though flock to the feeders in harmony.
This is a female.

Here's a male.

And here they are hanging out with American Goldfinches. 

I've said it before, I'll say it again - Everyone eats blackberries.
These two quail were munching on the leaves. 

I counted over 60 quail in the backyard this morning!

That's a lot of quail! That cat looks like one we had when I was a kid. Cute stitch!
