Many thanks to Vickie  at I-Stitch for the gift of the fabric need to complete the final two birds in the series. 

"Well done!", says the male Western Bluebird.

The female Western Bluebird is pleased too!

Now who is active in the backyard? 

The Lesser Goldfinches continue to fledge.

They are small birds, but very noisy and demanding! 

A Black-capped Chickadee.

Looks like a work of art inside the circle feeder.

Lots and lots and lots of young Black-headed Grosbeaks!
Five here... 

Seven here.

Back to five - I often count a dozen or more.

Papa Quail on the watch...

Love these photos, but for me, the Bluebird is just so pretty and I think your tapestry is fabulous. Well done, Diane

Well done indeed, Beth! Beautiful birds in your backyard. Stunning photos. If you haven’t already seen it, I think you might like the movie “The Biggest Little Farm.” Documentary film... gorgeous cinematography, amazing story.
