Here's another older stitch that I don't think I've ever featured. Looking at it now it is apparent to me that the poor snowman has lost his nose. If you find it, please let me know!
I am seeing more hawks more often. Both Cooper's Hawks and Sharp-shinned Hawks. My flock of Bushtits came by Tuesday afternoon and while at the feeders a Sharpie darted in fast as lightening! I loudly clapped by hands and the hawk darted off. I think all the Bushtits made it away safely.
Sharpies like small song birds like the Bushtits and the House Finches...
...and the Juncos.
The Cooper's Hawks prey on larger birds like Starlings...
...and California Scrub Jays. The jays are generally pretty good about sounding the alarm if they see a hawk in the area. Bottom line though, everyone has to eat!
