Here's What I'm Working On

 

Another Little Stitcher design.  

This time a European Robin.


I've been hearing Ruby-crowned Kinglets.  Finally, I was able to capture one with my camera.

The little Downy Woodpeckers have been very reliable.

I've seen two males - though they do NOT like to share space.

One usually runs the other off.

There's more tolerance for a female Downy.

Sunday's Hummers

I think I'm going to have a good turn out this winter.
I've seen as many as six birds at the same time.
All Anna's as expected.

A juvenile male


A female


An adult male





Happy Sunday everyone!

I've had multiple incursions in the backyard.

 Little Boo-Boo Bear

So this must be Yogi Bear.

The good news is that I was home and stopped them before they could do any real damage.

I wonder if he is laughing at me.

The shepherd's hook and tray feeder are both easily fixed.
