If you're a regular visitor you know there are turkey tracks all over my Nest.
One more showed up this week, along with a wrench and one more orange 16 patch block for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge effort this year.

Orange was the RSC color for September. Now we're working with our pink scraps. I have more scraps in pink than any other color (except maybe blue) because of the pink quilt I made for my granddaughter last year. I started with a couple of my larger pieces and made 8" basket blocks.
Those Hole in the Barn Door blocks are 6" and were assembled between seams (as leaders and enders) before I realized pink was the focal color for the month.That worked out well, didn't it? :-)
I'll be linking up with the other Rainbow scrappers over at So Scrappy.
When I went to the kitchen for breakfast this morning I saw something unusual on our back deck:
Can you see them? I think it's a pair of Northern Flickers. They didn't look exactly like the images I've seen elsewhere of Flickers but they don't look anything like other bird species that would be found around here.
I was shooting through our sliding glass door and the screen because I was afraid of scaring them away. The strangest thing was that both would be perfectly still for a time and then simultaneously start a sort of head dance. It's fall here, which seems an odd time for a courting ritual to take place. I guess I'll have to find out whether they migrate and then breed elsewhere!
