Red White & Blue Stitch / Yellow Birds

Here's my progress on my July red, white and blue stitch. It's more gray and green, and taupe than anything at the moment.

I'm awash in yellow birds.  Let's take a look.

The Orange-crowned Warblers have a pale yellow belly with an olive back.  

They've been fairly active lately.

They're probably the least showy warbler we have in the Pacific NW.

The Wilson's Warblers are much more vibrant.

The true test is the female, and as you can see she is Crayola crayon bright yellow. 

Loved her with the lavender verbena.

I got excited when she flew in closer...

The cage is annoying...

Oh!  Here she is on top. 

She's a pretty bird.

Back to the thicket again.

Then up on the deer fence.

This is a photo that makes me happy!
Nature at its best and prettiest.

Very nice progress on your red white and blue stitch! Your yellow birds are very cheerful looking.


I just love all the bird photos--you do a wonderful job of photographing them--and it is always interesting to see what cross stitch you are working on--
enjoy, di

We have a few yellow birds; they love cone flowers. Your stitching is going to be cute!
