Lots of interesting motifs in this little stitch.  It was fun to work on.

What's up at the feeders you ask?

The Red-breasted Nuthatch continues to drop by.

As he mostly hangs upside down, I cannot help but be amused watching him.


Here's a challenge for newbie birders.
Who is this newly fledged bird?
It's a young Song Sparrow, and no it doesn't look much like an adult bird.

Here's an adult Song Sparrow.

The males have started singing again.

Even a rather dull Mourning Dove is interesting upon close inspection.

Most of my Starlings have fledged and moved on and are no longer mobbing by suet and peanut feeders.  Yay!

A Warbler of some sort came by briefly, just long enough to tantalize me!

I had to stop putting out coconut halves filled with fat as the starlings were mobbing our garden with their young.

I love your little bee stitch! We have coconut halves which the blue tits and great tits are very fond of.

See? You finished it quick as a wink! Very nicely done! Glad you still get to see the Nuthatch... such a cutie. I never would have guessed that was a baby Song Sparrow... wow! It has to grow into it's beak! Cannot even make a guess on the warbler... Cheers!
