hey there! you are following Sinbad's journey through the SW as am I, and isn't it just a great pleasure to do it? I love orange kitties and that's how I met Johnny Lee - he saw that I had an orange kitty and well...the rest is history! I love finches too - their song and the way they fly, bobbing up and down like that. you must be so happy they've returned. I haven't seen any around here yet, but I tell you, when the baltimore orioles make their appearance on their way north - look out. we go pretty crazy over that event! have a great weekend TWgirl.

They are so pretty. We had a few over the winter, but haven't seen them lately. :)

I used to have more house finches than I do now. I'm not sure what changed. I do have lots of goldfinches at the thistle feeder, though.

Tracy said...

Tex, what a great way to describe them; a splash of color :) I like that! I hope you are doing okay...

Randy said...

I love that last photo! I bet they sound wonderful too.

I think house finches are rivals of purple finches. Do you get purple finches? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

We need to shovel around our feeders, they're still in a 3ft. drift. We'll be ready when they get here. Love your pics!

I get only House Finches. I like them and goldfinches. I keep looking for a purple finch but so far have not identified one here. Your photos are very good.

I actually have these at my feeders in the early spring. I wasn't sure, but you and Abe have helped me id them. Thanks!

Yep look they look like the bunch that are waiting around for sunflowers. I hate to tell them it is going to be awhile.

A nice series sharing these house finches with us. Today I was watching Nuthatches and Mountain chickedees. What good fun.

I love the drama of that second shot - framed by that circle! The last shot of the bird tip toeing along the edge. You live in a charmed setting!

We are over-run with cardinals but no Finches...yet!
J loves his bird feeders. First thing he does when he gets home each day is check on all the feeders. Then he kisses me hello!
Have a great weekend :)
