First off, let me say thanks for supporting me and my Strawberry Festival quilt entry. You are very sweet to support me. I will show photos of not only my quilt, but most, if not all, of the others.

I was standing in the dining room this afternoon and noticed some birds swooping down on my chickens. I watched a little closer and noticed they were bluebirds. I usually don't see bluebirds here. Bluebirds live in this area, but they are a bit shy. I wondered why they were so mad at my chickens, so I went to investigate.

This little guy had apparently fallen out of his nest. His parents were trying their best to protect him from the chickens. Big scooped him up and put him in a planter. His parents calmed down a little when they found him safe. I am not sure where he is now, I can only hope he is ok.

I was able to complete a couple of hexagon flowers for a swap I am a member of.

Thanks for stopping by! I will have photos tomorrow!

Pin It Now!

Wow! Glad Big was able to scoop up the wee one and put it in a safe place, and that the chickens were spared the wrath of mad bluebird parents! But even in all that, isn't wildlife grand???

Can't wait to see pics from the festival and your hexagons are GREAT!

Bluebird are so pretty, hope yours is now OK.
I am doing hex's too, its my hot weather project that I can sew outside. If the weather doesn't warm up and dry up, I won't get any more done.

I hope the little guy is ok, not a bird person but would hate to see something happen to him. The hexagons are just awesome. Reminds me I still have a ton to learn. Luckly I have you to teach me.
