I am getting the floss and linen ready for a new stitch, in the meantime, here's a look back at a one day project.

Many former bloggers have turned to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other forms of social media.  I do appreciate those folks who continue to blog.  I recently found a new blogger, Meg at Live to Stitch.  If you have a moment, you might stop on by and say hello.   

Most of our mornings start out quite foggy.  It makes for dull blurry photos, but I thought I would share this Robin with those of you dealing with snow and arctic cold. 

15 days in a row now!

My Yellow-rumped Warbler has shown up morning and afternoon for 15 days in a row.

He's pretty talkative, so I generally hear him and go get some bark butter for him to eat. 

Yellow atop his head, his chin, below his wings... 

...and on his rump.

I am guessing that he is a solitary bird.  I have no sense that there are
any other warblers out there.

He certainly has been a spot of color during a dull gray month.

The Juncos are another story - I see more than a dozen birds daily. 

They too are big fans of bark butter as well as black oil sunflower seeds.

Cornell University has several bird cameras that are well worth watching.
One is up in Ontario, Canada, and another in Ithica, NY.  But it is the camera in El Valle de Antón, Panama, Central America to which I've become addicted. As best I can tell the country is on the Eastern Time Zone.  The fruit eating birds are amazing. And there are squirrels!  For some reason it is weird to see squirrels in Central America.

That warbler is such a beautiful bird. I do like your little snow ornament. I have not stitched on such a dark color.
