The House Finch has Returned


He is back this year but the house sparrows beat him and his female to the nesting spot in the cedars. He sits in the nearby tree and sings for hours a melody that drifts through my window and is pleasing to the ear.I shot these with my hand held , fully extended lens as he is a bit skittish-not good shots , but a celebration of spring.

  2. I love these little guys. We get very few, maybe they are more shy than other songbirds. I got a neat photo at dusk of one. It comes late to the feeder to avoid the other birds.

    • I must go to the library to get a book on bird behaviours.Apparently they used to be restricted to the American southwest.

    • Don’t think my neighbour upstairs appreciates them so much as they are closer to his window.
