Yellow Bird Stitch to be followed by some Yellow Backyard Birds.
Yep, we did see the Easter Bunny as he hopped away...
But what we were not expecting, was the Easter Bear!
Once again the bear was pretty hard on my backyard feeders.
And he stole a feeder!
The bear also climb up this Douglas Fir tree, and broke the T-bar frame...
...which dropped the feeder to the ground for easy eating.
Thank goodness I'd been bringing in all my suet and peanut feeders or I'd have lost a bunch of those as well.
We decided to look at the backyard camera. And yep, there's a bear. The bear was active from about 1:20am-3:20am. And no, though my bedroom faces that direction, I did not hear anything even though I got up at 2:00am. My Dad bought the lumber to rebuild the support - we are upgrading from a 2 x 4, to a 2 x 6 - stronger! And I'll be taking down ALL my feeders each evening.
My American Goldfinch flock has slowly grown to two guys and two gals.
Lesser Goldfinch on the left, American Goldfinch on the right.
This male is almost done transitioning to breeding plumage.
I think he is quiet handsome.
I wonder if she does?
One of my House Finches has flashes of yellow.
And the male Evening Grosbeak has quite yellow...
...including the prominent yellow brow.
Love this guy!
