Blue birds in my Walnut Tree

Male Blue Grosbeak
I had to look this bird up.  I have never seen one before.  He was with the Eastern bluebirds and I didn't realize it was different until I looked more carefully at the photo.

Colorful Face Masks from my Zazzle store

I wanted to contribute to help relieve the crisis a little, so I made several designs for face masks in my Zazzle store since they are making them for customers and I haven't sewn in a while.  There is a Persian kitten, a big pink gerbera daisy, a red rose (not pictured), a hot air balloon and a heart design from a book.  They told me they make them in Nevada.  Some are cotton and some are polyester with a slot for an insert. They also sell some disposable face mask inserts at reasonable prices.  Here are some of the photos I used (all copyrighted by me).

We Want Your Osprey Nest Continued

In April our osprey nest was hijacked by a pair of geese. For a couple of days the osprey tried hard to reclaim his nest, but the brave geese wouldn't give up, and are now tending eggs or goslings (can't tell from the shore). We had not heard of this happening, but research tells us it does happen occasionally.
