One of the questions was about closing the gap when picking up sleeve stitches on a raglan sweater. This is the same technique you can use to close the gap on socks when you transition from picking up the sleeves along the heel flap to the instep stitches. The hole is often called a "pig's eye".

Last week I totally misspoke when I mentioned the difference between the juvenile male Cardinals and the mature males. You birders were too kind to mention it. It is the juvenile male that has the dark, almost black beak and it turns red later on.
Hummingbirds are here in greater numbers now. The woods are filling in even more. We’ve had a lot of rain and the leaves look almost iridescent at times. The barred owls are very busy these days. One night they were right outside our bedroom window, several of them with their barking sound. It is somewhat frustrating to know they are right there but not be able to see them in the dark. Then suddenly they are gone and you don’t hear them fly at all due to their special feathers.
Other bird sightings this week are Indigo Bunting, more Grosbeaks, both male and female, House wren singing all day which I love, and bluebirds.
