Fun with the Finches

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Yesterday was hot, blue skies, with some clouds. Made it just right for the birds...Of course they had their seeds that made them happy as well. I noticed a young male House Finch eating with the Golden Finch. I couldn't take enough pics of this beauty. It wasn't sure about me though.












I will post the rest of my pics tonight.

    Don't you just love those little guys?! At my house, the house finches rarely bother the niger seed, but tend to eat black oil sunflower seed with the other birds and sometimes the gold finches do, too! Actually, I just think they'll partake in any seed you want to feed them! haha (not really) Maybe my finch feeder is just too close to the house for them to relax there, but it's where it's was when I got those great pics of them (on my page)! I miss watching them. Love seeing yours, my friend!! ((HUGS))

    We have lots of hummingbirds but seed feeders just attract squirrels at my house.

    Beautiful birds, our little finches are reappearing in the garden after the nesting season, lots of young being fed on the lawn...there're three gorgeous little goldfinches at the moment!

    WOW Jeanne, these are nice colourful birds, I like the light red it shows up well

You seem to have lots more different birds than we do over here, or maybe it is my location at fault emoticon

    I sure do miss seeing these little birds at my feeders. Haven't put any out for a couple yrs. so they don't hang around. I enjoy your pictures.!!

    This summer our house finches outnumber our gold finches about 15 to 1. The house finches eat the safflower seed rather than the Niger seed at our feeders, though. Interesting.
