chipping sparrow.

male house finch.

male + female cowbird.

blue jay.

female + male cardinals.

female downy woodpecker.

this was quite the showdown!

the purple finches hung around all day!   i loved it!


i had a great day!  supposed to be 81 tomorrow…. looking forward to getting outside in the morning—— then a busy day planned.

    Super handsome visitor you had along with your usually crowd…and I do mean crowd.:)
    I only get to see Purple Finches in the dead of winter. Are they not strikingly pretty?

    Be patient…Bluebirds are very fickle. They can also be really sneaky. You could get a nesting pair yet.

    Nice looking Purple Finch. I usually have a pair in February for a week or two then they disappear.
    That little squirrel is ADORABLE. Do you know about Duncrafts squirrel photo contest? Entry deadline is the 15th. Check their website for details
