Miffed with My Muse

Put up a squirrel-proof bird feeder just after Christmas.  The cardinals were the last birds to warm up to it.  Only the males approached it - the females were nowhere to be seen!  So I consulted Roger Tory Peterson and the Audubon Society for the female facial markings.  Thought I had it nailed when I added the red mask.  No sooner had I completed my stitching, when a female finally comes along....sporting a BLACK mask.  Oh sure, NOW you tell me!  LOL  
The next challenge will be the pine boughs.  In the interest of preserving my eye sight (and sanity), I modified the pattern.  Stay tuned for further details.....  :)
