House Finch and American Goldfinch sharing lunch

The House Finch is so much larger than the Goldfinch, even when he is in the background. Like Richard has mentioned the House Finch are already turning color, getting ready for breeding season.
Hey, where you going?
These were all taken pre-blind days, straight from the glassed in room with the door barely opened, but they have been cropped some too.

Your house finches are starting to get their prettier darker colors! You & Richard have way more finch visitors than me. :(

Leed---Before my 'birding' days--I never noticed all of the changes in colors in the birds.. It is SO interesting to see them begin to get their spring colors already... That proves that spring is on the way. YEAH!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy
I recommend Richard's blog too. He gets some great bird pictures from up there in MN.

These pictures are very good, Leedra, but now that you have your blind I expect that we'll soon see even better pictures.

I have found that since beginning my pursuit of digital photography focusing upon wildlife that I am noticing much that previously passed unnoticed before my eyes. Watching the little birds make the cold days of winter so much more bearable!

Salty - My husband and I were talking about this very thing this afternoon. It seems we are seeing alot of Hawks. Don't think there are anymore than there were before, it is just our eyes are searching for birds constantly so we are seeing things we did not see before.
