It Does Not Look Like Much Yet


It's going to be a European Robin, I promise!

Rather blob-like at the moment.

I see a nice group of California Quail most mornings.

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!
